Late yesterday, I finished reading Osprey Warrior #138: Roosevelt’s Rough Riders, one of the most famous units in the history of the US military. It was used during the Spanish-American War, in Cuba. Roosevelt recruited a variety of celebrities, as well as cowboys and police. Most casualties, as has been true through most of history, were due to disease, but the unit was famous for the attack on San Juan Hill. Interesting read.
