The Splendid Little War

The Splendid Little War Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"It has been a splendid little war..". John Hay wrote to Theodore Roosevelt as the Spanish-American War ended in 1898. Indeed it was splendid for the American public, but for the Rough Riders and other soldiers it was as grim, dirty, and bloody as any war. Only the ineptitude of the Spaniards, and the luck of the Americans, kept it from stretching into a disastrous struggle.

Book News Annotation:

Drawing largely upon memoirs and other first person accounts of soldiers and sailors, Freidel presents a combat history of the Spanish American War. He concludes that American successes in the conflict often resulted from Spanish ineptitude rather than American military prowess. The text is accompanied throughout by b&w photographs of soldiers and scenes from the Spanish American War. The late Frank Freidel taught history at Harvard University.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:
