Description

A concise illustrated study of the War of Texan Independence, with a particular focus on the uniforms, equipment and organization of the opposing forces.

In 1823 Texas was opened to American settlement; over the next 12 years thousands took advantage of the opportunity. During this time the corrupt Santa Anna rose to power in Mexico. A dishonest and ruthless politician, thief, compulsive gambler, opium addict and liar, he nevertheless gained a measure of popular support and set about destroying federalism.

Conflict with the American settlers ('Texians') became inevitable, a conflict which included the legendary Battle of the Alamo.

Philip Haythornwaite covers the story of the War of Texan Independence in a volume backed by a wealth of illustrations and photographs, including eight full page colour plates by Paul Hannon.
