Publisher's Summary

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.

The Navy SEALs of the early 1900s

Duty. Honor. Patriotism.
This is an excellent book for history fans, Teddy fans, and books regarding self-discipline.
The narrator is above average.
This book well mirrors many of the live action accounts and other books currently being written by US Navy SEALs.

True Teddy

The politician shines through. This is what Teddy wanted us to believe about his stoic philosophy and "glorious" experiences in the war. Heroic in war, yes, but the spin is definitely late 1800s. Too much so.
