For ten extraordinary years following its successful revolution and independence from Mexico, Texas was a sovereign republic with its own army and navy. It fought not only to defend itself against Indians and Mexicans, but also to extend its frontiers to the Pacific. This absorbing text tells the little-known story of the armies of the Texan Revolution and the independent Republic of Texas and is illustrated with many rare images that add colour to this insightful book.

Author Biography - Stuart Reid
Stuart Reid was born in Aberdeen in 1954. His lifelong interest in military history has led to a longstanding involvement in historical re-enactment, which has broadened into work as a military advisor-cum-troop-instructor for film companies. His previous titles for Osprey include a three-volume work in the Men-at-Arms series on King George's Army 1740-1793 and Warrior 21: 'Highland Clansman 1689-1746'. Richard Hook was born in 1938 and trained at Reigate College of Art. After national service with 1st Bn, Queen's Royal Regiment, he became art editor of the much-praised magazine Finding Out during the 1960s. He has worked as a freelance illustrator ever since, earning an international reputation particularly for his deep knowledge of Native American material culture; and has illustrated more than 30 Osprey titles.
