REMEMBERING THE MAINE. The US Navy Battleship Maine exploded and sank in Cuba's Havana Harbor on February 15, 1898, kicking off the Spanish-American War. 358-pages with photos.

Click to EnlargeThe slogan "Remember the Maine" has been part of American history for more than a century, ever since the US Navy Battleship Maine exploded and sank in Havana Harbor on February 15, 1898. Students of history know that the slogan was used to promote the Spanish American War in order to punish the Spaniards and Cubans who caused this dastardly act. However, some scholars have known for 50 years that the explosion was actually an internal explosion of natural causes. The authors of this book explain the myth and the reality of the Maine's demise. This 358-page book with photos is an excellent read which all lovers of sea lore will appreciate.
