Despite being President for only 1,036 days, John F. Kennedy remains arguably the most popular leader in American history. His presidency witnessed the Bay of Pigs invasion, the Cuban Missile Crisis, the development of counterinsurgency in the Vietnam War, key moments in the history of Civil Rights, and the beginning of the space race. As well as examining these events in detail, John F. Kennedy - The Life, the Presidency, the Assassination explores his acts of heroism during World War II, his work in Congress and the Senate, and the controversial 1960 election. It also reveals Kennedy's fascinating private life - from the turbulent relations of the Kennedy family, to his marriage to Jacqueline Bouvier and their family - before closing with an assessment of Kennedy's legacy. Published to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Kennedy's assassination in November 1963, this book provides a unique look at the 35th President of the United States through its inclusion of 170 illustrations and 15 engaging removable facsimile documents.About the Author:
