"It has been a splendid little war..." wrote John Hay to Theodore Roosevelt as the Spanish-American War ended in 1898. Indeed it was splendid for the American public, but for the Rough Riders and other soldiers it was as grim, dirty and bloody as any war. Only the ineptitude of the Spaniards, and the luck of the Americans, kept it from stretching into a disastrous struggle. This volume is the compelling story of this often overlooked conflict, told largely in the words of the participants themselves.
