TR’s Last War: Theodore Roosevelt, the Great War, and a Journey of Triumph and Tragedy, written and reviewed by acclaimed historian David Pietrusza.
Pietrusza chronicles Roosevelt’s final years, as the former president relentlessly pushed for America to prepare militarily for World War I, under the presidency of an indecisive Woodrow Wilson. The author captures both the high points and tragic moments of an American icon’s twilight years.
