Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

This volume recounts the Goliad Massacre, in which about 400 prisoners on the American side were killed in 1836 under orders of President Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna during Texas's fight for independence from Mexico. Stout aims to bring the event to light, describing it and why it happened, along with historical background on Texas and Mexico, a description of the volunteers, and what led to the massacre, including leadership failures on both sides. Stout is an analyst in the defense industry. He spent twenty years as a US Marine Corps fighter pilot. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
