What the Critics Say

"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)

    "The Alamo"

    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.
