Title : The Imperial Cruise
Author : James Bradley
Picked up the book in B&N, had sparked my interest. American history (not that I approve them though)!
Teddy Roosevelt's fan addicts, please read this book. Come and meet the dark side of him.
The Aryan's West expansion to civilize the world explains this book. James Bradley painstakingly describe in detail the dilemma of President McKinley and his successor, President Teddy Roosevelt as they champion the fight against the Others in the world. Trying to claim the world as theirs, the masterminds of this time bought together plans to conquer the Pacific and have reign (implicitly) over the Asian continent. Learn about the Japanese and Korean dilemma, and the bloody battles fought with the Red Indians and Philippines. The Anglo-Saxon powers deem themselves superior and had the responsibility to conquer and eliminate the inferiors. Princess Alice Roosevelt became the icon of America, at times banzai-ed, at times hated.
Was it worth the lives?
I stopped many times in this book as the gruesome details came out. RIP, lost souls. RIP.
