Scheina (history, National Defense U.) presents a military and political history of Mexican general and president Santa Anna. He argues that Santa Anna was a masterful political opportunist and that despite his disastrous losses to the United States, he was an audacious, brave, and resourceful military leader. He suggests that Santa Anna was most successful against feudal armies of patronage, but that facing soldiers having a personal stake in outcomes often led to defeat. Annotation c.
