About the Author

Stephen L. Moore, a sixth generation Texan, was born twenty miles from the San Jacinto battlegrounds, where two of his ancestors fought for Texas independence. Author of three previous books on Texas and military history, Steve; his wife, Cindy; and their two daughters live near Dallas in Lantana, Texas.


It's a testament to Moore's skill as a military historian that he's able to make tertiary military taks. Interesting enough to warrant the couple of hundred dense pages he devotes to these not inherently fascinating tasks. Eighteen Minutes is a fairly old-fashioned military story that revels in the story itself, rather than any kind of heavy, acedemically oriented interpretation of it. Military history buffs will justifiably appreciate its lack of pretension and obsessive attention to detail. -- Jimmy McWilliams Austin American Statesman Extensively researched and the narative advances easily. -- Glenn Dromgoogle The Houston Chronicle A painstaking and precise account of the San Jacinto campaign. A definitive work on the Texas campaign following the Alamo and Goliad. This is not a Texas hero-worshipping or Texas-bashing book. It is a detailed work of history and, like all history, it is neither black nor white. No book collection of the Texas Revolution should be considered complete without this book. -- J. Osborne Gainesville Daily Register Superbly written military history. Wisconsin Bookwatch Excellent book. True West
