147 pp, large 8vo, hard cover in dust jacket. B&w photos. "Here, in short compass, is a lively, highly personal, and compelling account of what the war was like to the soldiers....Hard's group (Hard was the colonel of the Eight Ohio Volunteer) was the only Ohio regiment to go to Cuba. The men saw no combat action because they arrived only a few days before the armistice of Santiago, but the value of Hard's account lies elsewhere - in the story he tells of the men in his regiment. He recounts the mechanics of mobilization, camp life, the pace and problems of campaigning, and the traditional enemy of soldierly life before this century - illness. Seventy-two of the 1,325 men in the regiment died from malaria or other illness in Cuba or aboard ship or at Montauk or in hospitals in the United States or at home. Hard's narrative is enhanced by over thirty photographs - many taken by and preserved in the personal album of Chief Musician William R. Palmer, bandmaster of the E ighth... " Small bump to top corner of boards, minor wrinkling at top/bottom of spine. Dust jacket has light wrinkling at top of spine and flap-folds, minor rubbing. VG/VG
