Read in May, 2003, read count: 1

Very detailed and well-researched memoir. A very valuable piece of history. He makes use of numerous resources from the Official Records. I particularly enjoyed the early section of the book, where he gives his naration of the Mexican War. Civil War memoirs are fairly common, but Mexican War volumes are much more rare.

Unless the reader is a hardcore biography fan, this work should be treated more as a reference.
