One of the most balanced accounts of the fight available. He carefully explores the many legends of the battles between the Texans and the Mexicans and exposes the truth behind the myths. The Alamo offers a strategic and tactical analysis of the war as well as technical information. Sidebars detail the weapons used by both sides, strength and casualty data of the numerous battles, orders of battle, the financing of Texan freedom and a study of a little known war at sea.
During the revolution. Also included are maps of military movements and the most detailed tactical map of the Battle of San Jacinto available to date. Nofi's work is an excellent merging of the social, political, economic and military history of this important episode in American history.
