Jack And Bobby Kennedy
An elegant visual record of the life and times of the Kennedy brothers: Jack, Robert, Edward and the ill-fated eldest, Joseph Junior - the sons of one of America's most dynamic and accomplished political dynasties.
The Kennedy Legacy This is a story of the Kennedy brotherhood in three acts: Act I looks at JFK's presidency, as seen from Ted's front-row seat; Act II considers Robert Kennedy's five brief years as the family standard bearer; and Act III deals with Ted's 40-plus years in the Senate as keeper of the flame. Full description
Eight years apart in age, John F. and Robert F. Kennedy were wildly different in temperament and sensibility. Jack was the leader charismatic, ironic, capable of extraordinary growth and reach, yet also reckless. Bobby was the fearless, hardworking Boy Scout unafraid of dirty work and ruthless about protecting his brother and destroying their enemies.
A life's events, that go from personal and loving, to perhaps a little shocking and risque, to feast or famine, to a problem-solving, personal letter, from the Honorable Ronald Reagan and so much more. After all, we're talking about 80 years. You could see your own name, club, or town, mentioned in this roller coaster life story. Her book includes, historical facts of the times, the famous "Coconut Grove" fire in Boston, which Jeannie personally witnessed, that chilly November night, where 400 lives were lost, the story of the famous "Wasp" naval ship being lost at sea, during World War II, stories of the presidents, the "idol of the day", Franklin Roosevelt and Jack and Bobby Kennedy and escapades of famous personalities and "stars" of the mid "Twentieth Century".
To truly understand the dynamics and magic of the Kennedy family, one must understand their passion for sailing and the sea. Many families sail together, but the Kennedys' relationship with Victura, the 25-foot sloop purchased in 1932, stands apart. Throughout their brief lives, Joe Jr, Jack, and Bobby spent many hours racing Victura. Lack of effort in a race by one of his sons could infuriate Joseph P.
Very good in very good dust jacket.
