If your Mexican Ancestors ever fought in Mexico’s fight for independence from Spain or the Mexican Revolution then the following book may be worth looking at. It was commissioned by the Mexican government’s military agency called SEDENA. It is my hopes, as with any other Historical book that I recommend to you, that this book sheds some light into your ancestors past and also may it help you get an idea of what their life might have had been.
As the book mentions Mexicos’s history can not be defined without first knowing it’s military history and this books does a good job at it. It is available for free and hosted at SEDENA’s website. The only thing is that you will need to know how to read Spanish since this book is written in Spanish. Please do take the time to download this eBook and add it to your collection.
