Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Battle of Guant namo Bay was fought from June 6 to 10 in 1898, during the Spanish-American War, when American and Cuban forces seized the strategically and commercially important harbor of Guant namo Bay, Cuba. Capturing the bay from the Spanish forces was instrumental in the following Battle of Santiago de Cuba and the subsequent invasion of Puerto Rico. Although overshadowed by the land and sea battles at Santiago, the establishment of the United States naval base at Guantanamo Bay and the rout of defending Spanish troops by American and Cuban forces was important in the final Spanish defeat.show more
