This is an academic monograph for specialists, as the arguments are far too minutely detailed and dense to be accessible to laypeople. That said, the author spectacularly succeeds in connecting the conclusion of the war to the end of a certain species of militarism.

Synopsis

Part 1 of the second entry in the Maneuver and Battle in the Mexican Revolution trilogy, covers the mobilization, institutional beginnings, and operations of the Constitutionalist Army from its founding to the end of 1913. Of particular note are General Francisco “Pancho” Villa’s campaign to conquer Chihuahua, General Álvaro Obregón’s successful Guaymas Valley Campaign, and General Pablo González’s Tamaulipas Campaign. As the scope, scale, and sophistication of military operations continue to increase, the Federal Army expands, reorganizes, and popularizes, forfeiting its claim to professional exceptionalism in the process.
