Description / Correspondence Related To The War With Spain Collectors Set - Vol 1 and Vol 2

Correspondence Relating to the War With Spain, long out-of-print, is an invaluable two-volume documentary collection of the communications between The Adjutant General's Office and the field commanders. First published in 1902 and brought back into print to commemorate the centennial of the Spanish-American War, this facsimile edition provides a solid core of primary material and a starting point for research on a wide spectrum of topics related to the U.S. Army and its conduct of overseas campaigns in Cuba, Puerto Rico, China, and the Philippines. With an introduction by Graham A. Cosmas, who describes the War With Spain as a major event in the Army's evolution from a frontier constabulary into the military arm of a twentieth-century world power. The volumes serve as a hallmark of the Army's first efforts to project forces over great distances outside North America to achieve strategic objectives.

The price is amazing. So far so good, it has quite a bit of information not before seen in books both fiction and non-fiction from this reader's eyes. This reader is still in process of reading the book.
