Procter describes in colorful detail the background, character, and motives of the prominent figures at the Alamo -- Jim Bowie, William B. Travis, and Davy Crockett -- and the course and outcome of the battle itself. While 183 Texas "rebels" died at the Alamo, Santa Anna's attacking army lost approximately 600 men killed or wounded during the thirteen-day siege. Procter's concise and engaging account of a turning point in Texas history will appeal to students, teachers, historians, and general readers alike.
