This groundbreaking biography of the most charismatic of all 20th century American presidents reveals the profound, lifelong impact on John F. Kennedy of British history, literature and values.

Drawing on extensive new and astonishingly intimate private materials and original interviews, Leaming has uncovered the dramatic line that runs through Kennedy's complicated life, the trajectory of the friendships and forces that led to the White House and shaped his actions there. Here is the childhood reading of a sickly boy; Jack's rapturous engagement at the age of fifteen with the writings of Winston Churchill and his transforming experiences as a member of the Second Sons' Club of young aristocrats in pre-war London. Leaming also covers his campaign for the White House 'on the Churchill ticket' and the dramatic thousand days of the presidency.

Brilliantly researched, compellingly told, this is a colourful and tumultuous narrative of friendships and family, tragedy and triumph.
