Product Overview

Foreshadowing the twentieth-century experience, the Spanish American War was Americas first modern foreign war. Catapulting the United States into an international world power, the war had lasting international implications. Besides Americas acquisition of Puerto Rico, the Philippines, Hawaii, and Guam, the war led the United States to take to the international stage, confronting Germany and Japan (foreshadowing the conflict of World War II), and creating a diplomatic bridge between Great Britain and the United States. For Spain, the 1898-1899 conflict was the death knell of empire, which led to a national crisis culminating in the Spanish Civil War. This volume provides easily accessible information on the naval and army operations, Spanish operations, and the political background to the military events, with an emphasis on future foreign affairs. The Spanish American War is seminal to an understanding of twentieth-century U.S. foreign relations--in Cuba, the Pacific, especially Japan, and with Great Britain. It is also central to an understanding of twentieth-century Spain. U.S. military history also requires an understanding of amphibious operations, naval and army reform, deployment command and control, and interservice cooperation as reflected in the Spanish American War. This book provides a quick reference to what was once called this splendid little war. *Author: Dyal, Donald H./ Thomas, Mark A./ Carpenter, Brian B. *Binding Type: Hardcover *Number of Pages: 392 *Publication Date: 1996/04/16 *Language: English *Dimensions: 9.56 x 6.51 x 1.33 inches
