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.

The 1898 Spanish-American war is not as well known as WW2, the American Civil War or even the American Revolutionary War, but it was still a important conflict in which Spain lost Cuba and the Philippines to the United States. this book covers the famous Cuban battle of San Juan Hill in which the Rough Riders defeated the Spanish. I enjoyed it.

This book is a good overall picture of the campaign, however, on page 17 we have a problem. The disinformation is regarding firearms, of which most people in the UK know little. Speaking of the US troops which "were armed with the efficient Krag-Jorgensen bolt action rifle". Number one: The US Krag M1892 was NOT efficient! It was NOT loaded with a charger clip like a Mauser, or a stripper clip like a Mannlicher. The rounds were loaded one at a time (by hand) in a magazine which had a loading gate just in front of the bolt. Number two: "It fired a .30 inch, (.40 calibre) bullet, using a five round clip." The calibre of the US Krag was .30-40, which means it was 30 calibre and had 40 grains of smokeless powder. And it had a full capacity of SIX rounds, if one were using the magazine cut-off. I have already mentioned the Krag design is NOT clip fed. That goes the same for the original Norwegian, and the Danish variant. The Norwegian M1894 was 6.5mm x 55 (standard with the Swedes), and the Danish M1889 Krag was 8mm x 58R. The Spanish Mauser M1893 was in 7mm x 57, and fired a round with great accuracy, and was much faster to load with a charging clip system. The means once the bolt was pulled back, there is a channel at the rear of the receiver into which a charger clip of 5 rounds is inserted. One then uses the thumb to push the five rounds straight down into the box magazine. You push the bolt closed, which chambers the round, and you are ready to fire. The Mannlicher system differs in that a ready five round STRIPPER clip is inserted into the magazine, once the bolt is pulled back, and it STAYS in the rifle until the last round is fired, and it then falls out of the bottom of the magazine. This system is faster to load than either of the other two, with the Krag design being by far the slowest. Although, the Krag system allows one to top off the magazine at anytime. Ballistic wise, due to the lower powder charge. the .30-40 Krag, at longer ranges was inferior to the Spanish Mauser. Hence the quick adoption of the US Springfield 1903 in .30-06, which was built under license from Mauser. One thing I will say in favour of the Krag, is that it is the smoothest bolt action I have ever fired, and the recoil is pleasant, not like a mule, in the case of a Mauser.

Very succinct account of the American campaign in Cuba. Excellent artwork and wonderful color maps.

For the hardcore historian this book may not do. I like the graphics showing troop movements and the period photos. I picked this one up used and for the price I paid I'm not disapointed.
