Osprey Men-at-Arms 437 : The Spanish-American War and Philippine Insurrection 1898-1902

This book details the uniforms and weapons of the American, Spanish, Cuban and Filipino forces involved in the United States Army's first overseas war. In 1898 the USA took the decision to intervene in the Cuban war of independence against Spain, and to expel the last vestige of European colonial rule from the Americas. This led to the US acquiring rule over the Philippine Islands. Here US troops were sent into the jungle to fight a "colonial" war of their own, against Filipino insurgents unwilling to exchange one master for another. The text is illustrated with rare early photographs and colour plates. Text by Alejandro de Quesada with illustrations by Stephen Walsh.
