Timothy D. Johnson of Nashville’s Lipscomb University has a well-deserved reputation as a leading historian of the Mexican War. In For Duty and Honor, he studies the political, military and social aspects of the war as it affected Tennesseans of the day, both at home and at the front. The result is a well-written book of remarkable depth that will set the standard for future state and/or unit studies on that oft-neglected war of expansion.
