Publisher Description

Did you know that the United States tried to buy territory from Mexico before the war?

The Mexican-American War was a short war between the United States and Mexico, in the 19th century, that played a crucial role in shaping the landscape of the continent, and had a long-lasting effect on both countries. However, why is the war often overlooked by people?

Even though it was one of the first, major offensive wars fought by the United States, the truth is that it often gets overshadowed by notable events that followed it, like the American Civil War. In fact, most people likely know more about the Battle of the Alamo, which preceded the war, than the Battle of Palo Alto.

This audiobook aims to fix that. Get ready to learn more about this short conflict between two neighboring nations in North America, and how it changed the course of history.

 

In this audiobook, you will discover:


The causes of the war, such as Spanish colonialism, and the age of expansionism in the United States
The Texas Revolution, including the famed Battle of the Alamo
The perspectives of both sides before, during, and after the war, to better understand the reasons behind each decision
The main political figures of the period, including US President James K. Polk, Secretary of State John Quincy Adams, and General Santa Anna of Mexico
The motivations, goals, and actions of the various figures involved in the war, such as Zachary Taylor, who would later become a US president
The detailed events of the conflict itself, which spanned a period of almost two years, and took the lives of more than 13,000 people
And much more!
