Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The definitive version of the Spanish-American War as well as a dramatic account of America's emergence as a global power.

Book News Annotation:

Naval historian Musicant sees in the 1898 war the end of US isolationism and its entry as a player on the world stage. He also traces its origins to tabloid journalists, a public just far enough removed from the horror of the Civil War to think the battleground a romantic testing ground, a president uncertain of his support in his party and the country as a whole and taunted by a bellicose and bloody Theodore Roosevelt. All in all, he concludes, the situation then was much as it is now. His narrative combines military, political, press, and social events.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
