Our Book Recommendations
[This book has many great illustrations, photos, and tidbits on the war. Great book for just picking up and reading a bit here and there. Its text is not a comprehensive history of the war, however]Blow, Michael, A Ship to Remember. (New York: William Morrow and Company, Inc., 1992).
Field, Ron, Spanish-American War 1898. (Washington: Brasseys Inc., 1998).
[A good book on the sinking of the battleship MAINE, and is suportive of the coal bunker fire theory. Well written. It also provides a good account of the war itself]
[A good source for information on uniforms of the Spanish American War era ]
