5 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Peter Stines on January 17, 2004
Format: Paperback
Being a relative neophyte to the subject of the Texas Navy, I tend to review the newer books with caution. It's so easy to fall into the trap of repeating the same old lore from previous works. Sad to say, this is how the book starts out. The same tired old folklore about Anahuac and Colonel Juan Davis Bradburn. (The author claims that Bradburn and his brother were jailed in Tennessee for stealing slaves. NO, this is another myth. Bradburn's brother drowned in the Duck River, but there is no record of any prisoners by that name. One inmate was accused of horse theft) But once the author gets into the post revolutionary Navy, the text improves. More often than not, the Army of the Republic gets all the glory, but the Navy saw it's fair share of action. Oddly enough, the Mexican Government wanted to HIRE the Navy to help put down a Centralist Uprising in Yucatan. Old wounds tend to heal rather quickly when you are outnumbered! All in all, this is still a useful book.

Overall, I'm pleased to have this book for reference. But any book on the Texas Navy should include a section on the Texas Marine Corps.
