The Mexican War, 1846-1848 by K. Jack Bauer( Book )

21 editions published between 1974 and 1995 in 3 languages and held by 1,667 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume tells the story of the Mexican-American War, an armed conflict between the United States of America and the United Mexican States from 1846 to 1848 in the wake of the 1845 U.S. annexation of Texas, which Mexico considered part of its territory despite the 1836 Texas Revolution. The events that led to war are described with reference to military strengths and weaknesses, and every military campaign and engagement is explained in clear detail and illustrated with good maps. Problems of large numbers of untrained volunteers, discipline and desertion, logistics, diseases and sanitation, relations with Mexican civilians in occupied territory, and Mexican guerrilla operations are all explained, as are the negotiations which led to war's end and the Mexican cession

A maritime history of the United States : the role of America's seas and waterways by K. Jack Bauer( Book )

5 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 722 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book presents an in-depth study of the role of civilian maritime activities in the development of the United States. It stresses the crucial role played by the oceans, rivers, lakes, and canals. The exploration and settlement of North America occurred within a maritime context during the European Age of Discovery. The colonists exploited the seas and rivers to develop a maritime-oriented economy prior to the American Revolution. British trade regulations both benefited and retarded the colonist's economic growth and played a substantial role in the movement towards independence. The study concludes with a discussion of the reasons for the decline of the American merchant marine and the dangers which that implies. Individual chapters are devoted to the fishing and whaling industries, the Great Lakes, and the western rivers

Register of ships of the U.S. Navy, 1775-1990 : major combatants by K. Jack Bauer( Book )

2 editions published between 1991 and 1992 in English and held by 203 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Students of American naval history cannot find detailed information on those vessels in any single source. This work attempts to fill that lack by bringing together in one place the surviving statistical information on those vessels which have been commissioned into naval service or were intended for it. Insofar as possible, this volume rests of official sources, but those are sometimes incomplete and often contradictory. Where feasible, the omissions in the official record have been filled from other sources. Yet, major gaps in our knowledge of the ships of the navy still persist. The author hopes that this work will lead others to fill in some of the blank spaces"--Preface
