Hello!
I'm writing a military history research paper on Teddy's involvement and influence on the Spanish American War. Does anybody have suggestions for good articles or books, I'd greatly appreciate it!

The Rise of Theodore Roosevelt by Edmund Morris

The War Lovers by Evan Thomas

With The Rough Riders in Cuba by Theodore Roosevelt

The History Channel had a pretty good documentary called The Spanish American War-The First Intervention if you can find it.

Also, the Podcaster Dan Carlin (he does the Hardcore History podcast) has an excellent 4 hour overview of the Spanish American War with lots of info about TR. http://www.dancarlin.com 

Thanks!
I'm excited to give that podcast a listen!

A Passion to Lead: Theodore Roosevelt In His Own Words Edited by Laura Ross

Thanks!

Rise of Theodore Roosevelt, already recommended below, is very very thorough. 100% worth it.

"Agreed that women's ideas vary widely, which means there are women for who like whatever type of man you want to be.   Don't let any woman define what a real man is for you.  That's ass-backwards."

"What? It was light hearted. I don't think I can learn how to read people's minds and tell if their dad is the coach of the team. But thank you. Maybe they aren't that helpful."
