The “Banana Wars” is a term commonly used when referring to a series of U.S. military actions in Latin America. They occurred between 1898, and 1935. The Marine that wrote this small group of letters was involved in the Dominican Republic action, that stretched from 1916 to 1924. These letters are rare first person accounts of some daily activities during that time.
