Audiobook Giveaway: The Imperial Cruise (Ends 12/17) CLOSED

Thursday, December 03, 2009 Posted by Dina N


Are you looking for the perfect gift for that history buff in your life? Look no further - The Imperial Cruise by James Bradley is a fascinating journey in history. James Bradley also wrote the national bestsellers Flags of Our Fathers and Flyboys. This audiobook edition is read by Richard Poe with an introduction and closing read by the author.

Book Description
In 1905 President Teddy Roosevelt dispatched Secretary of War William Taft, his gun-toting daughter Alice and a gaggle of congressmen on a mission to Japan, the Philippines, China, and Korea. There, they would quietly forge a series of agreements that divided up Asia. At the time, Roosevelt was bully-confident about America's future on the continent. But these secret pacts lit the fuse that would-decades later-result in a number of devastating wars: WWII, the Korean War, the communist revolution in China.

One hundred years later, James Bradley retraces that epic voyage and discovers the remarkable truth about America's vast imperial past-and its world-shaking consequences. Full of fascinating characters and brilliantly told, THE IMPERIAL CRUISE will forever reshape the way we understand U.S. history.
