Description
By William R. Chermerka and illustrated by Wade Dillon

Twenty-six profiles tell the story of the most celebrated military engagement in all of Texas history. The action unfolds as M for Mexican Army and W for Women of the Alamo take their place in this tale of patriotic struggle. Although the battle was ultimately lost, it remained in the minds of Sam Houstons army, spurring them on to win the Battle of San Jacinto and secure freedom for Texas.

Descriptions of various historical figures highlight their significance as Alamo participants. These characters include the legendary David Crockett; Lt. Col. James Bowie, inventor of the Bowie knife; and William King, a fifteen-year-old boy who broke through enemy lines to join Alamo defenders. A timeline of events at the end gives a chronological look at this fateful battle.
