    Very informative and well organized - probably the best book about the Spanish American war

    This book is about the United States wrestling control of Spanish colonies. It tells about the important battles in Cuba, Philippines, and Puerto Rico and the aftermath. At the end, *SPOILER*the United States won the war and obtained the Philippines, Puerto Rico, and Guam, as Cuba gained its independence. However, the Philippines soon rebelled against the United States and achieved their independence*SPOILER*. One major theme was hypocrisy. This is a major theme because the US acts like they are trying to save Cuba and the other colonies from colonial power because they are anti-slavery, although they promoted slaves until a short while ago. Also, the United States was created by a strong anti-colonialism, but they try to make Spain's colonies into United States colonies. Another theme is scapegoating. Although the US made some foolish plans or things didn't go the way they planned, the media reported that the Cuban rebels didn't fight hard enough. Many operations were sloppy, but the US military tried to blame their failures on someone else. What I really liked about this book was everything was written in a condensed, down-to-the-point manner. It told the major battles and how were they fought, but didn't go into too much unnecessary detail. I also like the logical organization of the book. Even though not all the battles in all the colonies were in order, it talked about colonies separately instead of a jumbled timeline. However, I didn't like the biography section very much. Most of the information was completely irrelevant to the American-Spanish war, although it includes decent pre-war information. Overall, I believe that someone should definitely read the book up until the biography section. Only use the biographies as references for a project because I found most of the information useless. Also, I wouldn't suggest dishing out some serious cash for this book because there are plenty of free sources on the internet. However, this is the best book to use as a research tool for a project. I do not recommend any other works because this book is enough information for the whole war. However, as I said before, there is plnety of information on the internet for free that will serve you well, but I can't say the websites I have in mind without adhering to the Barnes & Nobles terms and conditions. I would give this book a 4/5 mainly because the biography section is a complete bombardment of important and useless facts. However, the book is informative, easy to read, and well organized.
