Overview

On February 23, 1836, Mexican troops under General Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna took control of San Antonio de Bexar. Just before Santa Anna's arrival, the Texians retreated to the relative safety of the San Antonio de Valero Catholic Mission and the siege of the Alamo began. For twelve days, Santa Anna fired a continual cannon bombardment and attacked with a flurry of cavalry and infantry charges, all designed to keep the Alamo defenders stressfully awake. Late on March 5, the bombardment stopped, and the fatigued Alamo defenders fell into a deep sleep. The siege ended in the early hours of March 6 when Santa Anna committed over 2400 infantry and cavalry to attack the walls of the Alamo. By sunrise, all one 188 Alamo defenders had been brutally slaughtered to the last man.

This is how history recorded the battle, but is this how it really happened?

On February 23, 2010, an Army infantry squad, carrying ammunition to a training exercise is swept into a time rift. The rift takes them to the Alamo, thirteen days before it fell.

About the Author

Having been born on December 24 created an important life lesson; choose wisely, the best is not always the largest. I followed a family tradition of military service, and despite my tours in Vietnam and Desert Storm, I continued to pursue my favorite activity of reading science fiction. I am a late starter to writing and have found writing as enjoyable as reading. I write the type of science fiction I like to read: believable, without incredibly ridiculous situations that suddenly appear to solve all the character's problems.
