"Here is a historian with the vitality and drive to match his subject. A reporter of the first rank, he can clothe the dry bones of history with the living stuff of which today's news is made." (Chicago Tribune)
An excellent, truly compelling book. A great deal of focus on Bowie, Travis, and Crockett, their lives and how they arrived at the Alamo. A fair, even handed telling of events, wherein the central players are shown with virtues and failings, but without any of the post-modern revisionism and political correctness that pollutes so many history works today. Its a gripping story of brave men in dire straits who chose to go down fighting. And the author tells you up front, its a story of heroes. I've read a lot of good stuff on the Alamo, but this is the book I love.
