Podcast: "The Hard Country," Episode 3.
Mexican nationalism, who had the best army of 1846, and the politics of the narco-state.
Yes, once again we have a new “Hard Country” episode for you. Have a watch:
Special appearances by Cocaine Bear and Bolivian narco-dictator General Luis García Meza Tejada.
One correction to my statements in the podcast here: the Mexican commander who uttered the famous riposte at the Churubusco surrender was not the redoubtable Nicolás Bravo, but his comrade in arms, the equally valorous General Pedro María de Anaya. The error is mine.
The Hard Country can be found on YouTube, quite obviously, and also at Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Google Podcasts, Pocket Casts, and no doubt elsewhere.
