    A very interesting topic about which I knew very little Much like the Punitive Expedition this book chronicles it starts well with lots of energy but ultimately sort of collapses under its own weight and limps to the finish line The book is plagued by cringe worthy descriptions of people ie his cruel eyes and feminine mouth etc that seem to pop up from something in the 19th Century The turmoil of the Mexican revolution and the images painted of American investment and involvement as well as the Veracruz occupation were fascinating And the book inspired me to learn about the Mexican revolution I was shocked that no mention was made of the infamous Zimmerman Telegram when the author briefly touches on German aspirations to instigate a war between the USA and Mexico Ulitmately it felt like a self published work that didn't have the depth to address such broad issues of Revolution and Invasion Further I felt the author treated Villa's brutality with far too benign an attitude He was a cruel cruel SOB

    American foreign policy has not changed much since Pershing rode down into Mexico to hunt down Pancho Villa he even brought George Patton with him If you're interested in the Mexican Revolution and Pacho Villa this is a must read book It's a wonderful story well researched and full of foot notes and references But it reads like a novel I really enjoyed this one there's plenty of hard riding killing and History

    The General and the Jaguar is the story of Francisco Pancho Villa and General John J Blackjack Pershing's expedition into Mexico to try to capture him andor disperse his forcesMexico in the early 20th Century was racked by revolutions and counter revolutions The United States especially under the Administration of Woodrow Wilson had taken a largely neutral watchful waiting stance during this turmoil Pancho Villa a blood thirsty revolutionary leader was only one of several revolutionary armies active in Mexico but originally liked the United States and considered Americans as friends Another such force was led by Venustiano Carranza In 1914 these two previously allied forces started fighting each other and a bitter hatred developed between them Carranza defeated most of his rivals and became Mexico's head of state in 1915 and was elected President in 1917 In an attempt to try to stabilize the environment in Mexico or so he thought Woodrow Wilson then decided to extend formal diplomatic relations to the Carranza government This shocked and angered Pancho Villa who viewed this as a personal betrayal by America and decided to take it out on America and Americans This is what led up to his infamous attack on Columbus New MexicoThe author of the book Eileen Welsome is a Pulitzer Prize winning journalist and winner of PEN Awards for one of her books Well written and researched it gives the reader a strong sense of the anxiety of life along the border and a real insight into the mind of this cold hearted popular hero of so many Mexican people at least those not devastated by his ruthlessness The American expedition into Mexico very nearly brought our two countries into full scale war with two armed engagements between our forces described Militia united from dozens of states being called up But events in Europe being what they were cooler heads eventually prevailed and Pershing eventually was ordered to withdraw from MexicoPancho Villa was never captured but was himself assassinated on July 20 1923 exactly three years after laying down his arms

    A solid read about an interesting topic While I did know some details regarding Pancho Villa and the attack this book definitely filled me in on a lot of the information I was missing I really enjoyed when the book would focus on the topic itself and describe locales and environments in vivid detail Even the information regarding the Mexican Revolution was very interesting I wish he would've gone into detail on that but obviously its not what the book is about The downside to the book is that it does tend to get bogged down in information and minutia that could have been skipped over For example there's a chapter devoted to many of the people in the town that was attacked and what their history and standings were While I appreciate and respect the detail I cant help but wonder if we weren't missing on other important information regarding Pancho Villa or Pershing's expedition A solid read if you are interested in the subject matter

    Lyrical and HorrifyingA beautifully written narrative based on solid research This book shows the depth of the historical divide between Mexico and the US a long sad string of misunderstandings betrayals racism and appalling violence The tensions and issues have not gone away This book should be reuired reading in Washington There are no good guys in this story and that is the point

    History re visitedAn interesting account of the Columbus NM Raid The events leading to the raid were descriptive and held your attention The many side stories of individuals who participated in the hunt for Villa were well told and seemed very objective For those serious students of the Mexican Revolution a MUST read to fill in the gaps of the historic events
