Beginning in the 1930s, from London to America, two powerful families shared an ever-widening circle of friends, lovers, and political associates--soon shattered by war, spying, infidelity, and two tragic deaths. By the 1960s and JFK's presidency, the Churchills and the Kennedys had overcome their bitter differences and helped to define the greatness in each other. Acclaimed biographer Thomas Maier tells this dynastic saga through fathers and their sons--and the remarkable women in their lives--providing keen insight into the Churchill and Kennedy families and the profound forces of duty, loyalty, courage, and ambition that shaped them. By approaching these iconic figures from a new perspective, Maier not only illuminates the intricacies of this all-important cross-Atlantic allegiance but also enriches our understanding of the tumultuous time in which they lived and the world events they so greatly influenced.
