Description

On February 15, 1898 the USS Maine went down with the loss of 260 men, the result of a mysterious explosion in Havana harbor. A naval court of inquiry blamed Spain and on April 25 the US declared war. Angus Konstam's eminently readable study guides us through the clashes at the 'Bloody Ford', the defense of El Caney, and the charge of the 1st Volunteer Cavalry (Teddy Roosevelt's 'Rough Riders') up Kettle Hill -- one event in particular that has entered US military folklore.
