I add a brief book review of Hardin's "Texian Iliad". This was written late at night and is unedited, so any typos or grammatical errors are due to insomnia.

Definitely a must-read for those interested in the period. I also enjoyed "Eighteen Minutes", which is a rather lengthy treatment on the 18 minutes that comprised of the battle. However the author goes into great depth about the how events leading to San Jacinto transpired. Keep up the great work rvandusen!

Thanks Prince Albert. I like "Texas Iliad" so much that I read it through twice in about a week. I'll now have to get "Eighteen Minutes". I'll be adding more reviews such as the relevant Ospreys, etc.

Nofi's book on the Revolution is also good. It has a great diagram of the San Jac battlefield.

I just read "Texian Iliad" and enjoyed it as well. Spot on review!

The artist/cartographer Gary Zaboly also illustrated "Blood of Noble Men, The Alamo Siege & Battle" by Alan Huffines. Nice artwork.
