about

Walter Russell, brother to Larry and Ben, the respective heroes of the two preceding volumes of the series, finds his way to Boston, secures employment, enlists in the navy, and is assigned to the Brooklyn. Then follow intensely interesting chapters, telling of Commodore Schley, the idol of his men; the routine of the life of the "Jackies," and blockade and discovery of Cervera's fleet, followed by the memorable conflict of July 3rd. In point of information conveyed, "Fighting in Cuban Waters" stands high. The order of rank in the navy, and man-of-war life in detail, are cleverly and accurately presented, while historically the volume might serve as a work of reference for most of the events in Cuban waters from the destruction of the Maine to the beaching of the Spanish fleet.
