Stephen L. Harden's "Texian Iliad" is a military history of the Texas Revolution. He delves into such details as the inferior quality of the gun powered used by the Mexican army. "As one veteran noted: "On examining the powder, we found it little better than pounded charcoal…"" Harden also tries to identify who these participant solders were and what was their background. The most pleasant surprise to me was the illustrations by Gary S. Zaboly. Mr. Zaboly does an excellent job in bring humanity the revolution through his illustrations, then describes them in detail. This is a great book by itself, the illustrations make that much better.
