The United States was swept into the Spanish-American War with the mysterious explosion of the USS Maine in Cuba's Havana harbor, which spurred a surge of anti-Spanish sentiment among Americans through the use of yellow journalism. Spanish-American War, Revised Edition gives a lively account of the events leading to war and of the ensuing battles fought on land and sea, ending with a thought-provoking assessment of this important conflict from which the United States emerged as a major player on the world stage. This new edition also features a chapter devoted to the new military tactics and weapons used during the conflict, giving researchers a full picture of the war.
