Summary
Contrary to legend, we now know that the defenders of the Alamo in the war for Texas independence were killed in a predawn attack, forcing a wild melee inside the fort before many of its defenders had even awoken. Tucker examines the prelude to the conflict, reveals that many of the Alamo's defenders staged breakouts from the fort, and provides a realistic interpretation of one of the seminal events in North American history
