About this Item

I am listing about 75 of these great books from the Osprey "Men At Arms" Series today. These are beautiful Military books with detailed information on the subject including many COLOR illustrations. These are softcover books with sturdy glossy covers and all pages printed on heavy paper stock. The Books are Clean and in Great shape, they seem to have rarely if ever been read. The books might show a hint of edgewear or faint crease marks - if there are any other issues, they will be noted below. This listing is for the one Men At Arms Series book only. I am open to negotiation on multiple copies. Thank You! The prior owner has signed the upper corner of the title page. Bookseller Inventory # 003303

About this title


In 1823 Texas was opened to American settlement; over the next 12 years thousands took advantage of the opportunity. During this time the corrupt Santa Anna rose to power. A dishonest and ruthless politician, thief, compulsive gambler, opium addict and liar, he nevetheless gained a measure of popular support and set about destroying federalism. Conflict with the American settlers ('Texians') became inevitable, a conflict which included the legendary Battle of the Alamo. Philip Haythornwaite covers the story of the War of Texan Independence (1835-1936) in a volume backed by a wealth of illustrations and photographs, including eight full page colour plates by Paul Hannon

From the Publisher:

Packed with specially commissioned artwork, maps and diagrams, the Men-at-Arms series is an unrivalled illustrated reference on the history, organisation, uniforms and equipment of the world's military forces, past and present.
