The author of the bestselling Ghost Soldiers returns with a thrilling chronicle of how the West was really won. Between 1846, when President James K. Polk declared war on Mexico, and 1865, when the South was defeated in the Civil War, the United States invaded and conquered the West, creating a mighty nation that stretched from the Atlantic to the Pacific. How this was accomplished is an epic tale of both shame and glory. "Blood and thunder" tells the story of how "Manifest Destiny" was forcibly carried out.
