The Alamo 1836 : Santa Anna's Texas Campaign Paperback

Illustrated by Angus McBride

Part of the Osprey Campaign S. series

5 out of 5 (1 rating)


Focussing on one of the most fascinating episodes in military history, this book tells the story of the 1836 campaign in Texas, including the epic siege of the Alamo and the battle of San Jacinto.

Dissatisfaction with increasingly oppressive Mexican rule on the part of the Texians led, ultimately, to war and in February 1836 Santa Anna marched his army into Texas.

He lay siege to the old mission named the Alamo outside San Antonio.

It was defended by a legendary collection of volunteers under Colonel William Travis and the famous adventurer Jim Bowie (he of the knife), and included David Crockett.

Review by

The usual excellent Osprey treatment of the siege of the Alamo with great illustrations and a short but clear discussion of the topic. A good way to get a clear understanding of the actions of both sides in the conflict.
