My review of West Point to Mexico by Bob Mayer (Duty, honor and Country series)

 My Review of  “West Point to Mexico” (Duty, honor and country series) by Bob Mayer
I am pleased to give it five stars maybe because it is the type of book that captures my interest. The author writes a very compelling story mixing fiction with history and I loved it.
The story draws you in as Mr. Mayer paints a very good picture of the characters and their habits. These characters are the ones that you read about in history books. He throws in some fiction characters portraying the time frame this is set in. The West Point class of 1843, and their actions in the history of the United States brought to life. One particular passage that I enjoyed was where the cadets were drinking but each time they took a drink, they stood back to back so the other couldn’t see them drinking. They were honor bound to report another cadet drinking but being back to back they could honestly say ‘they didn’t see the other cadet drinking’ if asked by a superior officer or the Commandant of West Point.  It was parts like this one that kept me up nights to finish reading the book. Other passages will keep you ready also. Mr. Mayer brought life unto those we only read a few words about in history with his excellent portraying of those as a student in school I read about. Enjoy reading his series in Duty, honor and Country.
