From the Publisher

Labelled a 'splendid little war' by Senator John Hay, the Spanish American War was a peculiar event in America's history, provoked as much by the press as by political pressures. Here, aided by superbly detailed maps and artwork, the author deals with the clashes at Las Guasimas and El Caney, the capture of San Juan Hill, and the naval battle and siege of Santiago. The war was to mark the end of Spanish sovereignty in her 'New World', and the establishment of the United States of America as a world power.

Female Marines Tackle What They Call A Corps' 'Culture of Sexism'

It was a standard post on Instagram back in May 2016: Eight women, all smiling in their Marine Corps uniforms. Then someone copied it and posted it to a Facebook group. "And I watched in real time as hundreds of people commented on this photo and said things like they wanted to rape us," Maj. Janine Garner told Host Ari Shapiro on NPR's All Things Considered. Garner asked permission from each of her fellow Marines to post the picture to her personal Instagram account. They all agreed. What they didn't agree to was the harassment that came later. "They immediately reduced us to our sexuality,"
