The Mexican Revolution (Spanish: Revolución Mexicana), also known as the Mexican Civil War (Spanish: Guerra Civil Mexicana), was a major armed struggle, lasting roughly from 1910-20, that transformed Mexican culture and government.

The Mexican Revolution took place along the entire length of the border between the United States and Mexico. Most of the intense battles and revolutionary intrigue, however, were concentrated in the border region of El Paso, Texas, and Ciudad Juárez, Mexico. For 20 years, the U.S. and Mexico border communities dealt with revolution, beginning before the 1909 Taft-Díaz visit and ending with the Escobar Revolution of 1929. In between were battles, assassinations, invasions, and attempts at diplomacy. El Paso was center stage for many of these events. Newspapers and media from all over the country flocked to the border and produced numerous stories, photographs, and colorful renditions of the Mexican Revolution. The facts and myths have been kept alive over the last 100 years, and the revolution remains an important topic of discussion today.

This is a spectacularly informative and fun picture book of the Mexican Revolution of the early 20th Century, played out across the Rio Grande/ Rio Bravo del Norte forming the US and Mexico border between El Paso, Texas and Ciudad Juarez, Chihuahua. The story is told in over 200 photographs that directly call to mind "The Wild Bunch," showing the same mix of desert fighting, brand-new biplanes and armored cars, American troopers, Mexican federales and revolutionists that is typical of the period and the Peckinpah film. Mexican insurrectionists in tall-crowned sombreros intermingle with cavalry troops from Fort Bliss, next to El Paso. You see snipers working from behind adobe walls; firing squads of both sides in action; each of the long line of generals and statesmen who became president only to be assassinated; Pancho Villa in his vainglorious poses; railcars full of paisanos rolling into Juarez to fight for liberty. This photo grouping was carefully collected - it is extremely successful in providing texture for the Revolution. The minimal text would benefit from the addition of dates for some of the key events, and a timeline or outline of the Revolution to provide more context for the incredibly real, present and immediate photos.

Great condensed history and images. Quick read. Early history was interesting and not included in most books. Could have expanded even further
