Summary
  • "The dramatic story of the most famous regiment in American history: the Rough Riders, a motley group of soldiers led by Theodore Roosevelt, whose daring exploits marked the beginning of American imperialism in the 20th century"--
  • When America declared war on Spain in 1898, the US Army had just 26,000 men. In desperation, the Rough Riders were born. A unique group of volunteers, ranging from Ivy League athletes to Arizona cowboys and led by Theodore Roosevelt, they helped secure victory in Cuba in a series of gripping, bloody fights across the island. Risen dives deep into the daily lives and struggles of Roosevelt and his regiment, using diaries, letters, and memoir to illuminate a war of only six months' time that dramatically altered the United States' standing in the world. -- adapted from jacket
