Synopsis

A remarkable study of an age that incorporated the spirit of the nineteenth-century with the technology of modern aggression 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; the G.I.s had to suddenly adapt from policing the American interior to sustaining an international power in far-flung corners of the world.
