Críticas: "[Maier] delivers the goods. Weaving the life stories of nearly 30 Churchills and Kennedys into a seamless narrative, Maier smartly anchors his reportage on the clans' larger-than-life cornerstones: Winston Churchill and Joseph Kennedy. The sheer accumulation of colorful anecdotes in "When Lions Roar" makes for riveting reading from start to finish." -"Washington Post"
"A captivating chronicle of the surprisingly many ways that Winston Churchill and Joseph P. Kennedy (and their progeny) crossed paths (and swords) over the course of the 20th century...What Maier beautifully factors in is the effect of these struggles on the children. "When Lions Roar "zeroes in on Kennedy's eldest two boys - the doomed, fair-haired Joe, Jr., who echoed all of his father's repugnant views, and the invalid Jack, who ultimately escaped them - pointedly contrasting Kennedy's loving, dutiful, dominated scions with Churchill and his only son, the gifted, yet agonizingly self-destructive Randolph... Laden with significant new research, the book offers up many intriguing tangential revelations about virtually everybody... Ultimately, however, he succeeds at what matters most: bringing to life Kennedy and Churchill's fatal differences and fascinating similarities." -"USA Today
"
"What I like most in Maier's giant work is the spine of this saga, the all-important record of influence the great soldier-statesman-historian's life exerted on the future American president." -Chris Matthews, host of MSNBC's "Hardball"
"Thomas Maier tapped into the mother lode when he chose to wrap Winston Churchill and Joseph P. Kennedy, along with their families and extended circle of famous friends, into the same volume. The twisted and convulsive lives of their numerous progeny, most of them strong-willed and fiercely independent, make the fictitious escapades of "Downton Abbey" look like Disney World...Maier's book is a near-perfect mix of politics, business, world chaos and bedroom gossip, and even the gossip is documented with the thoroughness of a master investigator...Whether your preference in books revolves around the corridors of the rich and powerful, or the elegant hotels and darkened guest rooms of the famous, you'll find this one very hard to put down." -"Buffalo News
"
"A thoroughly told and fascinatingly detailed account of the Churchill and Kennedy families that brims with revelation and showcases the dynamic relationship between these roaring dynasties." -"Irish America"magazine
"A well-researched historical masterpiece..."When Lions Roar" is a length but masterful dual biography and a genuine tribute to the two families whose public and private lives became intertwined." -BookReporter.com
"This spawling saga of two political dynasties...is full of wartime adventure, romance, and innumerable adulteries. Maier's vivid profiles of these charismatic figures makes for a nuanced study." -"Publishers Weekly"
"Two of the most notable names in 20th-century history are Churchill and Kennedy. In this fascinating dual biography of Winston Churchill (1874-1965) and Joseph Kennedy (1888-1969), Maier ("The Kennedys: America's Emerald Kings") describes not only both men's impact on politics but also the intertwined lives of their families over the course of four decades. Kennedy managed to obtain an appointment as U.S. ambassador to Great Britain in the early 1930s, where he struck up an acquaintance with Churchill, recently excluded from office because of his opposition to India's independence. In subsequent years, the relationship between the two men waxed and waned and eventually broadened to include Churchill's son, Randolph, as well as Kennedy's son Jack. Maier delves into archives on both sides of the Atlantic to bring to his narrative an impressive grasp of the two clans and the rich array of personalities that interacted with them over the decades. This is a book that cannot be put down, and its wealth of details, smoothly told, will hold the reader's attention from beginning to end. An excellent work for all history collections, especially those devoted to 20th-century political history."--"Library Journal
"
"A sprawling yet intimate panorama of two famous political dynasties."-"Booklist
"
"Writing a biography of an individual can become beset with difficulties. Writing a multicharacter history of both the Churchills and the Kennedys, covering primarily the 1930s through the 1960s, involves an almost unimaginably high degree of difficulty. Maier's cast of characters includes 14 Churchill family members and 15 Kennedy family members... Most pleasing is Maier's skill at locating information about less famous individuals who played key roles in the ways the two families connected and disconnected... his research carries the book along as interesting anecdotes continue to emerge."-"Kirkus Reviews"
"A highly enjoyable and expertly told account of two of the most important political families of the twentieth century." -Richard Toye, author of "Churchill's Empire: The World that Made Him and the World He Made"
"Many great personalities appear to history in cutout. Thomas Maier reminds us that few of them succeed outside an intricate network of public and private relationships, beginning with their families. In weaving together the stories of these two, Maier has made the best sort of collective biography: expansive, intimate, captivating and, evidently, a labor of love." -Ken Weisbrode, author of "Churchill and the King: The Wartime Alliance of Winston Churchill and George VI
""Thomas Maier has achieved the remarkable feat of offering rich new insight into the lives, achievements, and failures of two famous families, the Churchills and the Kennedys. If you think you know everything there is to know about the Churchills and Kennedys, you're wrong. Maier examines his subjects as no biographer has before. It is a monumental accomplishment." -Terry Golway, author of "The Irish in America" and Machine Made: Tammany Hall and the Creation of Modern American Politics
"Magisterial ... In this brilliant book, Thomas Maier probes the fateful relationship of two of the twentieth century's most remarkable political families. What sets this work apart is the author's unerring eye for the kind of vivid, overlooked detail that brings his extraordinary cast of characters to life. This is the very best kind of epic history." -Kevin Peraino, author of "Lincoln in the World: The Making of a Statesman and the Dawn of American Power"
