A Sketch of the Life and Character of Col. Alexander W. Doniphan
by D. C. Allen

A horse soldier's war

Doniphan's Expedition was an interesting sideshow of the American-Mexican War. His force, composed of men raised in Missouri, moved down the Santa Fe trail eventually meeting in battle and defeating a Mexican Army many times its own size at the Battle of Sacramento. What makes this book fascinating is that it is a narrative of these remarkable men and this noteworthy achievement from within the ranks and by the pen of a very ordinary private soldier. The march, the camp and the battlefield are brought graphically to life within its pages. Essential reading for those fascinated by the Mexican War, the history of the West and the experiences of ordinary Americans in war time. Available in soft cover and hard cover with dust jacket.
