Review:

"Excellent . . . An engrossing and timely history of five men who embraced the imperialist ethic." --James Chace, "The New York Review of Books"

"What gives Mr. Zimmermann's book its special character is his singling out of Roosevelt, Lodge and company as 'the fathers of American imperialism' and showing how their vision of the nation was transformed into reality. And that makes for a good story, full of craggy individualists and events that retain their power to amaze." --Richard Bernstein, "The New York Times"

"Riveting . . . ["First Great Triumph"] is essential background for anyone interested in how the United States arrived at its present place in the world . . . [and] a fascinating visit to an era that has received far too little attention." --Richard Holbrooke, "Foreign Affairs"
