about

Although the era of the Spanish-American War marked the emergence of the United States as a world power, it also proved to be a watershed event in the U.S. Army's history. During the conflict, the Army gained its first experience in overseas deployment on opposite sides of the world, waged a difficult counterinsurgency campaign in the Philippines and, during the Boxer relief expedition, got its first taste of multinational coalition warfare. "Correspondence Relating to the War with Spain", the Army's official written communications to and from its field commanders, remains a major primary source on its participation in the war with Spain. This authoritative two-volume reprint of the 1902 original edition continues to provide key material, as well as a starting point for research on a broad spectrum of topics related to the overseas campaigns in Cuba, Puerto Rico, and the Philippines. Coverage goes much beyond combat activities to include paper and telegraphic correspondence about supply, personnel management, and medical care, as well as extensive material on military government, political relations with Cubans and Filipinos, and difficulties in dealing with the American press. It also includes correspondence regarding U.S. participation in the China Relief Expedition. Long out of print and until now available only in a limited reprint edition, Correspondence Relating to the War with Spain is an indispensable source for the study of the U.S. Army in an era that propelled America and its armed forces into a controversial new age of imperial endeavor. Originally published in 1902.638 pages. ill.
