Title: La invasión Norte Americana en 1846: ensayo de historia patria militar
Author: Paz, Eduardo
Abstract: Eduardo Paz was a Brigadier General in the Mexican Army during the 1910 revolution who wrote extensively on military matters, with a particular focus on modernization of equipment and strategy. His volume on the Mexican-American War is an early work and examines the differing approaches of the Mexican and United States armies on such basic questions as supply, drill exercises and tactics, communication during combat, and field engineering. Paz provides a detailed look at the actual order of battle for both sides, along with brief sketches of the leadership styles of Generals Winfield Scott and Santa Anna. Suggestions are made for a more scientific approach to the military education of junior officers and emphasis given to the importance of morale among the rank and file soldiery.
