Inside the Spanish-American War: A History Based on First-person Accounts
By James M. McCaffrey
Publisher: McFarland & Co Inc 2009 230 Pages
PDF 3 MB
This is the story of the Spanish-American War, told not from the perspective of generals, policy makers, or politicians, but from that of the soldiers, sailors and marines in the field and the reporters who covered their efforts. Concentration on the daily lives of these people provides insight into the often overlooked facets of a soldier's life, detailing their training and interaction with weaponry, their food, clothing, and medical supplies, and their personal interactions and daily struggles. While the Spanish-American War set the stage for America's emergence as a global power, this is its history on an individual scale, as seen through the eyes of those upon whom the war had the most immediate impact - the soldiers who fought and died in it, and the journalists who documented their stories.
