From the introduction to this 66 page paper:
This occasional paper is intended to be a summary of Marine Corps operations in the War with Mexico. The battles and landings and not treated in a strict chronological order. Instead the war has been divided into three parts: the conquest of California, operations in Lower California and off the western coast of Mexico, and the invasion of Mexico.
