Imperial Cruise, The PH by James Bradley

3 items left

By James Bradley

Following the success of his two bestselling books about World War II, James Bradley began to wonder what the real catalyst was for the Pacific war. What he discovered will forever change the way you think about American history and the origins of war and empire in Asia.

In 1905 President Teddy Roosevelt dispatched Secretary of War William Taft, his own daughter Alice, and a team of congressmen on a mission to Japan, the Philippines, China, and Korea with the intent of forging an agreement to divide up Asia. This clandestine and wholly unconstitutional pact lit the fuse that would — decades later — result in a number of devastating wars: World War II, the Korean War, and the Communist revolution in China.

In 2005 James Bradley traveled in the wake of Roosevelt’s cruise and came face-to-face with the remarkable truth about America’s imperial ambitions, a story that has been effectively erased from our history textbooks.

Soft cover. 387 pages. Includes photographs. Book measures approximately 5/12 inches by 8 inches.

Perfect

Everything was perfect. My husband is a Veteran and enjoyed this gift very much. Thank you.

Enjoyed the book I always like reading real history.
One of the cups was completely destroyed, sent you an email when received got no reply, not happy on this
Got no geek patch or black tears.
What I did get intact (book & 1 cup) proved to be quite expensive…………

Loved it so much we bought it twice

My parents brought this shirt back as a souvenir for my 4 year old daughter. She wore it constantly until the day she discovered scissors 😭. She cut it up and was so proud of herself until I freaked out, then we both cried… I would usually take this opportunity to teach a lesson about scissors and say “sorry, you’re SOL.” But this gift was so loved and I felt she learned her lesson when she realized she had ruined it rather than improving it.

Great quality sticker

I bought it to put with my photo book and keepsakes from my trip to visit this incredible memorial.

Great coin

Just a beautiful tribute to those who served at Pearl Harbor on that fateful December 7th.
