The Battle of the Alamo is one of the most dramatic moments in American history—a stirring saga that has become a modern myth in which all Americans, and especially Texans, take great pride. Poet, novelist, and historian John Myers Myers gives us a fascinating account of this American symbol. With exhaustive research and obvious passion for his subject, Myers evokes the situation and characters of the legendary siege, bringing to life such figures as Bowie, Travis, Crockett, and Santa Ana with authentic details and great gusto. Here is the “master tale of the American frontier” with all the facts behind the genuine heroism that has made the story immortal.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Here is a historian with the vitality and drive to match his subject. A reporter of the first rank, he can clothe the dry bones of history with the living stuff of which today’s news is made.”

    Chicago Tribune

  • “The majority of the stories of the Alamo fight have been partly legendary, partly hearsay, and at best fragmentary. It has been left to John Myers Myers to present an exhaustively researched book which reveals the chronicle of the siege of the Alamo in an entirely different light…Myers’ story will stand as the best that has yet been written on the Alamo…It’s a classic.”

    Boston Post

  • “[A] personally enthusiastic investigation of one of America’s heroic frontier legends…Outstanding in its recapitulation and assessing of available material.”

    Kirkus Reviews

    " 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. "
