More About The Alamo by John M. Myers; Michelle M. Haas
 
 
 
Overview
Some writers can relay the facts, but they can't tell the story. Others can spin a yarn, but stretch the truth and omit details. John Myers clothes dry bones in living flesh, and makes it sweat, bleed and speak the truth. His book, The Alamo, is a pure pleasure. He researched and wrote it just after WWII, while working at the San Antonio Evening News. It was the first complete history of the Alamo. It delves into the history of the structure itself. It covers the backgrounds of the principal players we associate with the Alamo saga. And it gives a detailed, blow by blow account of the siege and battle; the weaponry, tactics, and strategies of both Texian and Mexican commanders and men. There's no revisionism here. T. R. Fehrenbach considered it the best book on the Alamo, and even recommended it in the chapter notes of his book, Lone Star. Thorough research, vivid style and a Fehrenbach recommendation. You really can't ask for much more. The true exploits of heroes at a time when they are needed most.
