Soldiers of the Nation: Military Service and Modern Puerto Rico, 1868–1952

Harry Franqui-Rivera

Praise from Reviews from American History:

“Like Harry Franqui-Rivera, I cannot understand Puerto Rico without the signifier of war. His book, which is the result of rigorous archival research in Puerto Rico, Spain, and the United States, presents a new interpretation of the close relation between war and transformation in our island.”
