From the dust jacket- "The golden age of picture postcards coincided with Mexico's revolution of 1910 and U.S. war preparedness along the border to render a rich historical record of those tumultuous times. Pancho Villa, Black Jack Pershing, the U.S. Naval invasion of Veracruz, the daring Mexican attack on Columbus, New Mexico, and the mobilization of more than 100,000 green, ill-equipped American troops along the Rio Grande all were depicted by enterprising photographers on postcards, which were then inscribed by buyers and sent by the millions throughout the world."
