    Published when Theodore Roosevelt was only 23 years old, The Naval War of 1812 was immediately hailed as a literary and scholarly triumph, and it is still considered the definitive book on the subject. It caused considerable controversy for its bold refutation of earlier accounts of the war, but its brilliant analysis and balanced tone left critics floundering, changed the course of U.S. military history by renewing interest in our obsolete forces, and set the young author and political hopeful on a path to greatness.

    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.

    George Washington was leading a ragged group of soldiers in the Revolutionary War. Odds were not favorable and Washington's generals were not cooperative. In the cold nights leading to Christmas, Washington willingly fought with his own troops to do what should not have been possible. Had Washington not been willing to lead there may have come a day when America would be free of England, but many believe without his leadership this war would have been lost and freedom delayed.
