Battles of the Spanish-American War by Diane Smolinski
Spanish and U.S. armies fought each other for only four months during the Spanish-American War. More U.S. soldiers died from disease and tainted meat than in actual combat. Battles of the Spanish-American War examines key battles in the brief war -- from the first battles in Santiago, Cuba, to the Spanish surrender of Puerto Rico. Battle maps, after action reports, and time lines show the importance of these battles in this "splendid little war."
