Publisher's Summary

General Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna arrives in San Antonio with 6,000 troups and begins to besiege the Alamo for thirteen days. Flying a red flag and playing the El Deguello (cut the throat), Santa Anna signals that no quarter will be given to the defenders. You will be there with David Crockett, Jim Bowie, William Travis, and 16-year-old David Cummings as they fight to the bitter end in this spectacular epic production of one of the worlds most famous battles.

Sympathetic Dramatization

More or less historically accurate, with a few minor exceptions (such as Cummings, the unit’s surveyor, was 27 at the Alamo, not 16.) As portrayed in this telling, much of what we know of the battle was revealed through correspondence sent out from the Alamo. Well done, IMHO.
