One hundred years ago American colonial ambition found expression in the seizure and occupation of Cuba, Puerto Rico and the Philippines, and intervention in the Boxer Rebellion in China. These military enterprises cast the American Army in a dramatic new role, and from policing the American interior the G.I.s had to suddenly adapt when the United States emerged as an international power with interests in far-flung corners of the world.

Uncle Sam's Little Wars is a superb pictorial history of the American troops' arms, uniforms and equipment in this age of transformation. With more than one hundred rare photographs and captions by a leading expert in American military history, this volume is a valuable addition to the series and a remarkable study of an age which incorporated the spirit of nineteenth-century warfare and the technology of modern aggression.
