Cruz to Mexico City and describes the successes and failures as the Army marches on That writing was interesting and informative unfortunately there was The other writing is painfully boring in places For instance Lee must hide for most of the day at a water hole when he was Lee must hide for most of the day at a water hole when he was for the Army Page after page after page after page after page bored yet Shaara takes us into Lee s mind as he thinks about the most boring parts of his life and describes in minute detail how his legs are beginning to get numb and what his dreams are and on and on about stuff that was so boring I forgot it as soon as my yes moved to the next boring thing That was the longest day in the history of the United States maybe the world And I read it all just in case something important might be buried in it That was the worst but not the only What Next After School ? example by a long shot It was so grotesue that I marked the book from five to three stars Started 20190411 finished 20190521 Haven t been able to catch Jeff s freuency not a fan withxception of Gone for SoldiersAppreciated his interpretation It combined well with Zollinger s Chapultepec Wow what a surprise This was just an Emerging Markets excellent book farnjoyable than Gods and Generals which was the only previous Jeff Shaara book I read and which paled in comparison to his father s The Killer Angels However Shaara Jr has become a better writer and in taking on the Mexico City Campaign of the Mexican American War he found a new conflict that hasn t been overworked before but which proves to be a brilliant preuel to the Civil War Trilogy introducing many of the same characters who will lead both the North and the South 15 years laterThe book focuses almost completely on two characters Robert E Lee and General Winfield Scott telling their story in alternating although I really liked how at the very A Home of Another Kind end he includes individual chapters told from Grant s Longstreet s and Jackson s perspectives Lee comes off as a bit prim and proper and holier than thou and while that makes him an at times annoying protagonist that may well be an accurate portrayal However the character of Scott is a revelation I knew nothing of the man going into the story other than how he is presented in the beginning of Gods and Generals as an out of touch old man who naps away his afternoons But here he is a real force of nature whombodies both leadership and wisdom I really want to learn about the true man now as well as the Mex Am War in general and isn t that a key goal of historical fictionThat said I do have two niggling complaints The book has almost as many ndings as Return of the King and Shaara continues to over abuse the sentence structure his father created for King and Shaara continues to over abuse the sentence structure his father created for Angels and used to such better ffect Lee watched them disappear into the brush thought He was alive buthe was waiting to die or Lee felt a rising heat in his chest thought My Godthey will never come back Apparently Lee thought andpaused a lot because he does this on nearly African Successes, Volume I every page But otherwise this is a real page turner and I highly recommend it to anyone withven a superficial interest in the Civil War American history or military history in general. Lves as young men witness for the first time the horror of war While Scott must weigh his own place in history fighting what many consider a bully's war Lee the Trigger Samaniego 1 (Stallion, engineer becomes Lee the hero the one man in Scott's command whosextraordinary destiny as a soldier is clearIn vivid brilliant prose that illuminates the dark psychology of soldiers and their commanders trapped behind Lehrbuch Der Physiologie enemy lines Jeff Shaara brings to life the haunted personalities and magnificent backdrop the familiar characters the stunning triumphs and soul crushing defeats of this fascinating long forgotten war Gone for Soldiers is anxtraordinary achievement that will remain with you long after the final page is turned From the Hardcover diti. A wonderful story great writing The book flowed very well No dry spots The story of the US vs Mexico book flowed very well No dry spots The story of the US vs Mexico The tale is told from the point of view of the generals and the officers on ach side I never learned much about the Mexican war in school Basically th is a novel of the Mexican War It is based on the facts and the people of the war but Shaara reports conversations that probably didn t happen but could have He reports thoughts of the main characters which he wouldn t know but they could have happened So he takes some literary license to write the book but he does a good job of it I know a lot about the Mexican War and the battles that took place as well as the men involved The two main characters are Robert E Lee a young captain And Winfield Scott a crusty old general There are other characters in the book who were actually in the war and became players in the civil war 14 years later Several southern military men were involved in the Mexican war and then were prominent in the Civil War Shaara uses the facts of the Mexican War that are readily available people places times and weaves them into a very ntertaining story It is a war story so there are descriptions of the terrible battles that were held There are many bumbling generals in the war who have risen to their ranks because of politics They seem to have no sense Robert E Lee is portrayed as a very bright caring sensitive man who doesn t want recognition but just wants to do his job the best way he can It makes me want to read a biography about Lee I was teaching history but I always skipped the war between the US and Mexico There Was Curriculum Than I curriculum than I rightfully cover during the school year and this was my favorite war to skip It seemed dull as dirt and there was no real righteousness behind it as there had been with the American Revolution and the American Civil War I left it out until large numbers of Latino students moved into my district Suddenly instead of mostly Asian kids I had mostly Latino kidsand the English Language Learners instructor promised them and THEN told me that I was going to teach them about the war between the USA and Mexico He had a point kids need to know their own history I had to make some changesThank heavens for Shaara While I didn t incorporate his fictional account into my curriculum the reading level being far beyond what my students could read it made it feel real to me and infused me with greater nthusiasm Hey if the war was Marketing Excellence 3 essentially a land grab on the part of the USA let s go ahead and teach it as one Meanwhileveryone will know whence the saying Remember the Alamo comesIt seems to me that whenever some general thread regarding historical fiction comes up on Goodreadscom someone completely out of left field finds it necessary to disavow Jeff Shaara I wonder whether that is because he has set the standard for recently written historical fiction I love his work and I always say so He can take the most incredibly dead material come alive and seem vital and interesting and though he takes some literary license which is what makes it fiction he tries to stay true to his subject material He knows his stuff and doesn With his acclaimed New York Times bestsellers Gods and Generals and The Last Full Measure Jeff Shaara xpanded upon his father's Pulitzer Prize winning Civil War classic The Killer Angels ushering the reader through the poignant drama of this most bloody chapter in our history Now in Gone for Soldiers Jeff Shaara carries us back fifteen years before that momentous conflict when the Civil War's most familiar names are fighting for another cause junior officers marching under the same flag in an unfamiliar land xperiencing combat for the first time in the Mexican American WarIn March 1847 the US Navy delivers ight thousand soldiers on the beaches of Vera Cruz They are led by the army's commanding general Winf. ,
