Summary
John Fitzgerald Kennedy was President of the United States when the Cold War was at its height, with crises developing over West Berlin, Cuba and Vietnam. Yet most biographies and books about the Presidency focus on the myth of Camelot, rather than Kennedy's role as a military president. Backed by a wealth of primary documents, Lawrence Freedman provides a vivid portrait of Kennedy as he wrestled with these big issues of war and peace
