Richard Delafield, Maj. Alfred Mordecai, and Capt. George B. McClellan to the battlefields of Crimea to observe the European military in action. American military commanders had studied European armies before, but the Delafield Commission was the most ambitious military observation mission up to that time, and the first to observe an on-going war.

Details of the book
The Delafield Commission and the American Military Profession

The thirty-five-thousand-man army that engineered Mexico's independence was a melting pot of insurgent and royalist forces held together by the lure of rapid promotions and other military renumeration.Overwhelmed with internal threats such as Indian skirmishes and peasant uprisings, this poorly motivated, ill-trained army seldom enjoyed the respite, resources, or direction necessary to overcome challenges to territorial sovereignty posed by Spain, France, texas, and the United States during Mexico's first three decades of nationhood.William A. DePalo, Jr., studies the birth and tumultuous adolescence of the Mexican national army and examines how regional, social, political, and economic factors ate away at its institutional framework and on the Mexican government's attempts at military reform, causing Mexico eventually to lose nearly one-half its national territory.
