In a tale that stretches back to Ireland, John F. Kennedy: An Unfinished Life describes the birth of the Kennedy dynasty, the complexity of JFK’s early years, the mixture of adulation and resentment that tangled his relationships with his mother, Rose, and his father, Joseph, the full story of Kennedy’s actions in the Second World War and the true details of how his dominant older brother Joe was killed, opening the door to his own ascendancy. Here is the gripping story of Kennedy’s transformation from an awkward speaker to a brilliant politician with irresistible charm: as a Massachusetts senator, through the 1960 campaign against Nixon and on to the White House. We learn for the first time why Bobby Kennedy was chosen as Attorney General, and how Kennedy’s team – Johnson, Bundy, McNamara, Schlesinger, Sorenson, Rusk – faced the Bay of Pigs, threats against civil rights activists in the South, the struggle for a test-ban treaty and the Cuban Missile Crisis.
