    John Kennedy's Role in World War II

    This very brief title is really interesting account of John F. Kennedy’s Naval service during World War II, including the sinking of the ship under his command, PT-109, by a Japanese destroyer. The experience changed him – for the better. The author is Thomas Fleming, a well-known and respected historian. Worth reading.
