    1 thought on “The Alamo ”

    1. An astounding tale of real valor by real men that knowingly faced their certain destruction for a cause. Meticulously researched and well described this is a story that should be told to our children and grandchildren. What an incredible story!

    2. John Myers Myers, in the last sentences of his book, The Alamo, perfectly captures the essence of what this story means to America. He writes, "The Alamo isn't a structure now; it is a symbol of valor in the minds of men. It can never fall again." Though he closes with that thought, it is obvious that he wrote this history with the knowledge that this particular event is just as important as myth as it is as history, and that it presents unique challenges to the historian to distinguish between [...]

    3. A very decent history of the Alamo. Myers gives enough of the backstory to make it interesting. It is a conventional rendering but with good scholarship. He dose discuss Bowie's slave smuggling, over all gives very short shrift to an issue which did play a bigger part in the factors that led to the war with the Mexicans.

    4. Very informative historical account of the famous siege of The Alamo and the events leading up to the confrontation that changed the course of history for the Lone Star State and the United States. Central casitng could not have come up with a more colorful and compelling cast of characters than Jim Bowie, William Travis, Santa Anna, and Davy Crockett. Learned a lot!

    5. Nice detail and history but a little on the dry side. I was hoping for a little more excitement from this book about the Alamo. We are talking about Jim Bowie, Davy Crockett and 183 against Santa Anna and his army of 5,500.

    6. This is an excellent historical book on a sentinel American historical event. The Alamo ultimately had a profound impact on what the USA ultimately became. I found many of the historical details rather fascinating. It is an excellent book.

    7. Read this as a kid for a 5th grade history project. Since then, I've been hooked on the story of the Alamo. Once every 4-7 years or so, I often find myself picking this up and reading it again.
