This book is made up of the letters and diary entries of Austrian Lieutenant Ernst Pitner written during his time as a volunteer in the Austrian Corps in the Mexican campaign. It’s interesting to read about what this officer experienced and saw but I must confess that there isn't a lot of excitement that keeps you riveted to the pages.
