Product Details


"Benefiting from the new information and hindsight, The Kennedys at War movingly captures the poignancy of America’s most-talked-about family as they grapple with the difficult challenges of the Second World War. Reported with great integrity, this compelling saga deserves a wide readership. A truly first-rate study." –Douglas Brinkley, director of the Eisenhower Center for American Studies and professor of history at the University of New Orleans

"The Kennedys at War is a vivid group portrait of that perennially fascinating family during the tragedy-filled years that taught its members, as John F. Kennedy himself remembered, that there was ‘nothing inevitable about us.’ The author’s convincing portrayal of the future president as a substantive as well as sardonic young man should help to rescue his reputation from the damage done by the more irresponsible revisionists."
–Geoffrey C. Ward, coauthor of The Civil War: An Illustrated History and Mark Twain: An Illustrated Biography
