Reply To: Books about the Spanish-American war


I bought this on clearance several weeks ago and have not read it, but it looks interesting: The War Lovers: Roosevelt, Lodge, Hearst, and the Rush to Empire, 1898

There’s also a chapter on the Spanish-American War in The Costs of War: America’s Pyrrhic Victories, available from mises,org.

With the Exception of Teddy Roosevelt and the Rough Riders, the Spanish-American War seems to be sparsely covered in American History these days…maybe if that weren’t the case, we wouldn’t be rushing to establish our Empire…
