Andrew Roberts (this week’s podcast victim) doesn’t write about Theodore Roosevelt in his new book The Storm of War: A New History of the Second World War. The Roosevelt you’re probably thinking of died in 1919, two decades before the war started. But his son, Theodore Roosevelt Jr., fought against the Axis. As a brigadier general, he participated in D-Day, receiving the Medal of Honor for his valor. He survived the landing at Utah Beach but a month later he was dead–not from a German bullet, but from a heart attack.
