Be prepared to spend hours of uninterrupted time listening when beginning this CD. It is
interesting for sure, but if you stop and go back and pick to where you left off, you may need
to review what you listened to the last time, to keep up with the story. But, if you are a history
aficionado then you will have no problem! You will dive right in and enjoy every tantalizing minute
of this behind-the-scenes look at these events in history.
The Imperial Cruise documents Theodore Roosevelt’s mission across the Pacific, contrived
to negotiate the groundwork for the Pacific War. Knowing that his daughter was quite a media
attraction, he sent her along with the diplomatic group and the future President Taft as part of the
plan to deceive the American people. She would prove to be a distraction for the press and allow the
group to institute secret treaties and plans with the Asians that would later lead to World War II
and the Korean War, with millions killed as a result.
These facts have been conveniently covered up and erased from history. Little was known of this
mission until after Roosevelt’s death. Bradley actually traveled this historic trail and uncovered
these undocumented facts. When you listen to this audiobook, you will be left with a completely new
impression of politics and war. This is a great audiobook for history buffs and anyone who has an
interest in war memorabilia. I recommend it to those men in your life who are hard to buy for. They
will thoroughly enjoy this CD set. I found the narrator to be effective in presenting the material
without teaching, but I definitely suggest you have the time to listen to several discs nonstop.
