Written by American historian Micheal Cullinane, The Battle for Cebu: Andrew S. Rowan and the Siege of Sudlon (1899-1900), is a critical source book, a fresh and important contribution to the history of the Filipino-American War. It is meant to encourage further investigation of issues the Rowan account raises. 

The remarkable manuscript that forms the core of this work is the most detailed military account of a battle in the Filipino-American that has so far been published. Written around 1900, "The Conquest of Cebu" narrates a pivotal event in the U.S. occupation of Cebu Province, the American siege (June 1899-January 1900) of the Cebuano republican army's base in the central Cebu highlands that had as its epicenter the mountain district of Sudlon. The author of the manuscript, Captain Andrew S. Rowan (1857-1943), played a key role in reconnaissance and combat in the siege of Sudlon.

The author of this book, Micheal Cullinane, has studied the Philippines, and in particular Cebu, for over four decades and his knowledge of nineteenth and early twentieth-century Cebu is unmatched.
