Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Adding to the Remember series (which profiles major American battles), Walker offers a detailed account of one of this country's most famous last stands. Opening with clear context about why tensions between Texas residents and the Mexican government were brought to a head, the book then chronicles events directly leading to the siege of the Alamo and its immediate aftermath, following up with an epilogue on the decisive battle of San Jacinto 10 months later. Bringing the history to life is a healthy selection of dramatic, modern paintings along with plenty of archival drawings, maps, and old photos. Back matter includes resource lists, biographical postscripts on notable Alamo survivors, and several time lines. This doesn't emphasize primary source accounts as much as one might expect, given the subtitle, but students of the conflict will welcome the attractively presented information available in the book, which can serve as a bridge to Jim Murphy's more in-depth Inside the Alamo (2003).

I cannot personally review this book because I bought it for a gift for my 9 yr old grandson. He loved this book! He received it on Wed, read it and wrote a book report on it the next day.
