James W. Ryan's "CAMERONE" for sale as eBook

Just found this online...

It's a Google eBook of  CAMERONE - The French Foreign Legion's Greatest Battle, by James W. Ryan, a thin hardcover (110 pages, including index) published in 1996.

The entire book is not uploaded, as I believe it is meant only to be sampled prior to purchase.

Have to say, if you're interested in Camerone and don't have a copy, IMHO you should!

The eBook is not cheap -- looks like it goes for almost $80.00.

The book and eBook includes several simple maps/diagrams of the battlefield and the hacienda compound.

I bought my copy from Articles of War, back in 1998, for about $50.00.

Here's the LINK:

Here's a selection of some photos from the book, which I will use as reference for the primitive Indian dwellings on the Western outskirts of Camerone:
