Here is my best explanation:

'battle' is the definition.

(famous mission and siege from the Texas revolution)

'article by the french doctor' is the subsidiary indication.

'article' becomes 'a' (example of the part-of-speech).

'by' is a charade indicator (letters next to each other).

'the french' becomes 'la'.

'doctor' becomes 'mo' (**).

'a'+'la'+'mo'='alamo'

'to get' is the link.
