The War with Spain in 1898

The War with Spain in 1898 Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

“Remember the Maine!” The war cry spread throughout the United States after the American battleship was blown up in Havana harbor on February 15, 1898. Americans, already sympathetic with Cubas struggle for independence from Spain, demanded action. Brief and decisive, not too costly, the Spanish-American War made the United States a world power.

David F. Trasks War with Spain in 1898 is a cogent political and military history of that “splendid little war.” It describes the failure of diplomacy; the state of preparedness of both sides; the battles, including those of Theodore Roosevelt and his Rough Riders; the enlargement of conflict to rout the Spanish from Puerto Rico and the Philippines; and the misconceptions surrounding the war.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 492-624) and index.

About the Author

Chief historian at the U.S. Army Center for Military History, David F. Trask is also the author of The AEF and Coalition Warmaking, 1917-1918.
