Overview

Brothers: The Hidden History of the Kennedy Years by David Talbot

The New York Times bestselling, groundbreaking account of one of the most tumultuous periods in our history—the Kennedy Administration and its dramatic aftermath—by acclaimed journalist David Talbot.

Though countless books have been written about the Kennedy men and their brief, tumultuous time in the White House, few have offered as many explosive revelations as this one. David Talbot describes a JFK administration more besieged by domestic enemies than has been previously realized, from within the Pentagon, the CIA, the FBI, and the mob. It is against this dark backdrop that he charts the emotionally charged journey of Robert Kennedy, whose soul-scouring quest to find the origins of his brother’s murder led him, to his horror, back to the dark corners of American power that had been part of his portfolio: U.S. intelligence, Cuba, and organized crime.

From the Kennedy “band of brothers” to RFK’s hope of using executive power to solve Jack’s death once and for all, this probing work of history draws on more than 150 exclusive interviews to produce a bold look at power and vengeance. A topic of perennial interest, Brothers is a multilayered, complex tale of gut-wrenching history.

"Brothers" by David Talbot is a must-read of the Kennedy Administration. Talbot provides a detailed backdrop of the tensions and conflicts that the Kennedy Administration faced. Talbot doesn't shy away from the dark issues that shroud how the Kennedys reached the White House nor the implications of who really assassinated JFK. "Brothers" is a perhaps also a reminder of the stark realities that we face today.

Over my lifetime I've probably read over 25 books on the topic of the Kennedys, their lives, and their assassinations, and this one is one of the best. I absolutely couldn't put it down. I found myself getting a better grasped of the challenges that JFK faced while in office than ever before. The author tracks down every living person he could both within the Kennedy circle, and outside of it, to give the reader a clear vision of what exactly was going on both before and after both Kennedy assassinations. I'm fairly picky about the books I decide to spend money on, but this one was worth every penny.

A must read for all those that have always questioned what really happened. Talbot has the facts to back up his findings. Never before have I read how everyone involved was connected. This book makes me realize how much can be hidden by our secret govt. agencies- and perhaps what Bush is covering up now.

Talbot provides a lot of unimportant information I felt that I didn't need to know the backgrounds of so many unimportant people. I gave up about half way through it. I am currently reading The Dark Side of Camelot BY Seymour Hersh in its place. Hersh's book provides many more of the details and facts that I was interested in regarding the Kennedy administration and its dark side.
