Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 6-10-In just over 100 pages, Golay has chronicled the causes, major events, and crucial military strategies of the Spanish-American War, including the conflict's effects on the course of American history. Like other titles in the series, this book has a lengthy index; many enlightening archival photos, reproductions, and maps; and frequent, well-integrated quotations from primary sources, including some quotes from soldiers in battle. The terse, fact-filled narrative may be less engaging than Albert Marrin's The Spanish-American War (Atheneum, 1991) or Don Lawson's The United States in the Spanish-American War (Abelard-Schuman, 1976), both of which devote more space to the war's leaders, but it is a solid, well-researched account.-Phyllis Graves, Creekwood Middle School, Kingwood, TX
