Cantu offers us in a superb novel, the saga that involves a battalion of soldiers -mostly Irishmen- who fought with the Mexican troops against the American invaders, shedding light on historical myths such as the legend of The Álamo, and on the reasons why Mexico, in losing the war, lost half its territory to the United States.
