In 1898, as the Spanish-American War was escalating, Theodore Roosevelt assembled an improbable regiment of Ivy Leaguers, cowboys, Native Americans, African-Americans, and Western Territory land speculators. This group of men, which became known as the Rough Riders, trained for four weeks in the Texas desert and then set sail for Cuba. Over the course of the summer, Roosevelt's Rough Riders fought valiantly, and sometimes recklessly, in the Cuban foothills, incurring casualties at a far greater rate than the Spanish. Roosevelt kept a detailed diary from the time he left Washington until his triumphant return from Cuba later that year. The Rough Riders was published to instant acclaim in 1899. Robust in its style and mesmerizing in its account of battle, it is exhilarating, illuminating, and utterly essential reading for every armchair historian and at-home general. The books in the Modern Library War series have been chosen by series editor Caleb Carr according to the significance of their subject matter, their contribution to the field of military history, and their literary merit.… (més)

Very interesting historical account of the invasion of Cuba. I'm somewhat surprised by the racism, but 1898 wasn't that long after the Civil War, & people were sadly misinformed about the intelligence of colored people. Since Roosevelt was there, this is a first hand account. ( )

The material is clearly unabridged TR as he was at the time of the Spanish American war. He briefly memorializes many of the men he served with, some of whom are easily recognizable to any US history geek (like me and mine).
There are, indeed, study questions to help the listener clarify points and would be useful to any military history studies.
The narrator has a clear voice and diction which make him the perfect lecturer. If I may suggest, speed the recording to a comfortable rate for the first read through, then reset to standard rate for any note taking and absorption needs.
I won this free audio copy in a giveaway. ( )

This is the Taylor edition of Roosevelt's regimental history of the 1st United States Volunteer Calvary. ( )

TR is a great man, but a poor writer. Really could have used an editor to make this easier to read and follow. It reads almost like a journal with several lists of names of people he knew, but doesn't develop. ( )

This is a first-hand account of the experiences of the Rough Riders by their leader, Teddy Roosevelt. A fascinating story of just how rough these soldiers had it, this would be a great way top show students the humanity behind one of outstanding presidents as he was just beginning to establish his reputation and public persona.

Hark! I hear the tramp of thousands,/ And of armed men the hum;/ Lo! a nation's hosts have gathered/ Round the quick-alarming drum--/ Saying, "Come,/ Freemen, come!/ Ere your heritage be wasted," said the quick-alarming drum./ "Let me of my heart take counsel;/ War is not of Life the sum;/ Who shall stay and reap the harvest/ When the autumn days shall come?"/ But the drum/ Echoed, "Come!/ Death shall reap the braver harvest," said the solemn-sounding drum./ "But when won the coming battle,/ What of profit springs therefrom?/ What if conquest, subjugation,/ Even greater ills become?"/ But the drum/ Answered, "Come!/ You must do the sum to prove it," siad the Yankee-answering drum.
