    1. Brian McAllister Linn Is a well-known author, some of his books are a fascination for readers like in the The Philippine War, 1899-1902 book, this is one of the most wanted Brian McAllister Linn author readers around the world.

    2. This was an outstanding book, and probably the most definitive military account of the war. Linn effectively explains the transition from conventional operations to counter-insurgency (COIN) operations. Additionally, Linn clearly articulates how this struggle had regional distinctives from island to island. We used this work in one of the Army schools I recently completed. There are quite a number of lessons learned which could and should be applied to the current COIN battle in Afghanistan. How [...]

    3. Few Americans remember the Philippine Insurrection of 1899-1902, and even fewer have enough real knowledge about this conflict to comment on it intelligently. These gaps can be remedied by reading Professor Linn's fine account of this now forgotten war, in which the USA successfully combined tactically sophisticated combat, occasionally brutal anti-insurgency policies and the raising of the Filipinos' standard of living to defeat the rebellion against American rule of those islands. Linn is unsw [...]

    4. The operations in the Philippines during the Spanish-American War are often overshadowed by the action in Cuba. This work discusses military action and the politics of the war in the Philippines beyond Admiral Dewey and Manila Harbor. A good read for a more balanced view of that war.

    5. This book seemed promising on one level, but came up short on another."The Philippine War" should be considered, in the good way, a major revisionist work that analyzes, critiques and corrects faulty history of the US's war against Philippine independence movement after the Spanish American War. As a military work, it is an excellent, detailed account of conventional military action. Battles, skirmishes, tables or organizations and tactics are well described, and add to our understanding of the [...]

    6. A solid military history work, but one that is not too technical or jargon-laden, so anyone could pick it up and read it through. It talks about one of our longer, but currently, less-discussed, counter-insurgency campaigns in the Philippines. After the US claimed the Philippines from Spain in the 1890s, the US looked to establish control over the islands. However, Philippine leadership did not share that vision, and from there, conflict emerged. Some of the problems in US equipment, leadership [...]

    7. In the Philippine War Brian McAllister Linn portrays a more complex history of America's anti-guerilla tactics in 1899-1902. The policy swung between "benevolent assimilation" and severe "chastisement". A brutal conflict that tarnished the US army but subjugated the islands

    8. Mostly an academic text with the overtly stated purpose to correct the myths (that we apparently all hold dear?) about America's initial invasion and colonization(?) of the Philippines after the Spanish-American War. Linn does a great job about not choosing sides and giving credit where credit is due on both sides, but it's primarily told from the American perspective. Again, no fault of his, that has as much to do with availability of usable resources as anything. I did like the detail and the [...]

    9. Extremely well researched, I couldn't get into all the war tactics, but the political and cultural aspects very interesting.
