In 1836, Mexican troops under Santa Anna defeated a small band of Texan defenders at the Alamo. The Americans including Davy Crockett and Jim Bowie, were slaughtered to a man in the final downfall.
Now a rich oil field has been discovered just south of the Mexican border. As things stand, it belongs to the Mexicans. But if the Alamo had never fallen....
Through a top secret process 33 combat-hardened veterans are headed into the past. Their mission: To use modern weapons and tactics to change the outcome of history and secure the oil for a greedy American Tycoon that dreams of being known as the richest man in the World.
This is an interesting book that held my attention all the way through. There were some concepts of space/time travel mentioned that I had never thought of or read about anywhere else which was nice. There was very little thought given to the “Butterfly Effect” though and if the scenario given had actually occurred there would have certainly been a large ripple effect that would have changed the existing World. The ending of the book was a little disjointed also leaving you to wonder about a few inconsistencies. Still it was an overall good read for a slow Saturday afternoon and I enjoyed musing over the “what if” possibilities.
