Rough Rider's Charge up San Juan Hill...didn't happen. I now know why the Rough Riders called the hill they did storm "Kettle" hill. Fascinating references to the differences between the black powder guns of the U.S. and the newfangled "smokeless " gun powder used by the Spanish in both their Mauser Rifles and their new artillery. The book goes deeply into the fabric of the Rough Riders. Where they came from and the strengths of the men were obviously a source of great pride to President to be Roosevelt. Read this book it is worth it!

Having always been a fan of Teddy, I was excited to read this book. I don't know if it was just me, but I found this book to be pretty tedious and self aggrandizing. I don't think it was for me. Three stars is pushing it.
