When the United States declared war against Spain in 1898, Theodore Roosevelt resigned his post as Assistant Secretary of the Navy and was commissioned Lieutenant Colonel of the First United States Volunteer Cavalry - dubbed by an adoring public as the Rough Riders. It was his recruitment and leadership of this unorthodox military unit that made Teddy a household name - and eventually president. The Rough Riders is Roosevelt's firsthand account of his adventures. Download and start listening now!

    " I found this book about the Spanish-American War and Roosevelt's volunteer Rough Riders to be very interesting and easy to read. What added immensely to his vivid account was additional text and hundreds of pictures included by Richard Bak. I am glad I read it because of what I learned about the war and Roosevelt. "

    " It was an ok read. I lost momentum. It wasn't exactly action-packed. But it was fun to read something written by such an important historical figure. "

    " Teddy's own take on his part in the Spanish-American War. Not a lot of vainglory here; a quite honest, realistic, sometimes humorous account of the group and its experiences. A nice surprise for anyone who hasn't read anything written by T.R.; his somewhat naive yet very winning patriotism and enthusiasm shine through this book. "

    " It's not that often that we get an insight into a future leader of America. Teddy is way too excited about the glories of battle, but our future president shares his standards, a model for John ?Wayne movies. An interesting aside is that the Rough Riders were integrated by late 19th cent standards - they included American Indians. "
