John F. Kennedy: Voice of Hope
Sterling Publishing Company, 2007 - 124 Seiten
Although John Fitzgerald Kennedy’s presidency lasted less than three years before an assassin’s bullet killed him in Dallas, Texas, he had a lasting impact upon the world. Youthful, charming, and articulate, he--and his sophisticated wife Jackie--symbolized hope and optimism in a time of turmoil. Young readers will find themselves enthralled by this biography of one of America’s most popular leaders, which explores J.F.K.’s privileged childhood and tight-knit family; wartime heroism; and political accomplishments, which began in Congress and eventually led him to the U.S. presidency--the youngest man ever elected to the Oval Office.
