The creation and existence of the St Patrick’s Battalion (El Batallón de los San Patricios) during the Mexican-American War of 1846-48 is perhaps the most controversial and shocking story to emerge from that bitter war.

"The Rogue's March" by Peter F. Stevens is a superb piece of well researched history that should be required reading as part of any college's "American History" program.

This is a terrific story, yet a tragic drama of predijuce, hatred, and a man's devotion to his ideals (be they correct or not). This is a story about soldering, war, inhumane treatment (including earlier versions of "water-boarding'), and ultimately...desertion into the enemies camp by not just one or two individuals but... almost 14% of the initial military force that entered Mexico in the start of the Mexican American War (1846-1848). The question remains..."were they justified in their actions?"

The title is actually an old Revolutionary War "fife and drum" march, but one that clearly portrays this historical event.

John Riley ("...the malevolent Pied Piper), and his St. Patrick's Battalion (San Patricios), fought for the Mexican forces against their own regiments and became the most hated men in America. John Riley fought under the flags of England, America, Mexico, and...his very own,"The San Patricios."

If, anyone accused the subject of history as boring then, I can assure you that they have never read..."The Rogue's March" by Peter Stevens. This is one campaign you will never forget!!!

It tells the story of why Irish, Germans and others deserted to the Mexican Army and Santa Anna. It was a time and place where the young officers used extremely harsh punishment for the slightest infraction. The Irish were mostly not US citizens and some felt little patriotism toward America,

For anyone who gone out and celebrated Saint Patrick's Day, this book will help you understand why this celebration is necessary. Along with Pearse's poem, The Rebel, this book will give you pause to think of the things you don't know, things that you were never told, and things they do not teach you.

Anyone who wishes to be a military leader should be required to read this book.

Peter F. Stevens does an outstanding job in bringing to life the issues that permeated and greatly harmed the American armies of General Zachary Taylor and General Winfield Scott from 1846 to 1848. At the core was American nativism, hatred and fear of newly arrived Catholic immigrants mainly from Ireland and Germany. Recruited nearly at the pier, these soldiers had no loyalty nor a real investment in their future as Americans. What loyalty they had was toward their Catholic faith. Meeting them in the army was a cadre of immigrant hating junior officers who often imposed discipline more severe than found in European armies. The result was the highest desertion rate of any war the United States ever fought. More important, the Mexicans took advantage of immigrant soldiers' unhappiness and formed the St. Patrick's Battalion, led by John Reily, that distinguished itself in battle against former comrades and messmates until their defeat and capture. The author shows how severe the courts martial were that resulted in the execution of fifty deserters and the lashing and branding of others including John Reily. That this series of events became a downside of Manifest Destiny and a forerunner of the Civil War becomes prominent in the text. This worthy book is a fine read, well researched, militarily and historically sound, and serves as a real contribution to the field of military and social American history.

Very illuminating about the abusive treatment of immigrant soldiers by their own (U.S.) officers, and a good history of the Mexican War. It's well-documented with footnotes and bibliography. Some of the heroes of the Union and Confederate sides of the Civil War should lose a few points after reading about their behavior.

Great book about a period of Mexican history not widely known about.
Hǻrley Quinn
great
Very well researched and written. Found it enthralling. As an Irishman I feel sad when I read books where our brothers or sisters have been treated badly down the centuries, but then the truth is the truth. Congradulations to Peter Stevens for his excellent work. I'd recommend this book to anyone interested in forgotten or covered up history.
