The Spanish War, an American Epic--1898 Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

On the night of February 15, 1898, the U.S. battleship was ripped in half by an explosion in Havana harbor with the loss of 266 American lives. War with Spain followed nine weeks later. After a three-month fight on two fronts half a world apart, the era of isolation was gone forever, as the United States formed alliances and gained spheres of influence that would shape its desstiny for decades to come. G. J. A. O'Toole colorfully depicts the sweep of events and also presents new findings on the mysterious mission of the Maine and on the part played by Washington in the expansion of the conflict.

Synopsis:

"O'Toole is . . . astonishingly good. . . . [He] is a master of the knack of weaving significant detail into his recapitulation of the war." --Alden Whitman,

Synopsis:

[A] highly readable history . . . of this popular 'splendid little war' and its international repercussions.Splendid. . . . An excellent general history of the Spanish-American War. . . . Lively reading, with an anecdotal narrative full of day-by-day action and personality sketches.

About the Author

G. J. A. O'Toole has served with the Central Intelligence Agency as chief of the Problem Analysis Branch and is the author of several books, including two historical novels.
