|Notes:||Subtitle: The Siege of the Alamo|
In thirteen chapters, Lon Tinkle tells the day-by-day story of how 182 men fought a losing battle for Texas but won for their cause an almost unparalleled measure of fame. As the days of the siege are described, the author flashes back to pivotal points of destiny — the circumstance that led each person to be inside the walls of the abandoned mission late in the winter of 1836.
