Well worth reading this new information about both families.
Amazing details - politics, business deals and more.

In When Lions Roar, journalist Thomas Maier details the many connections between two prominent families: the Churchills in England and the Kennedys in America. Focusing on Winston Churchill and Joseph P. Kennedy, Maier spins a compelling narrative that illuminates a major portion of 20th century history. While the dual biography of Winston and Joseph forms the book's framework, Maier relates information about 14 people in the Churchill family and 15 Kennedys, giving due attention to the more prominent family members. Politics and gossip from the 1930s to the 1960s fuel this fascinating book, which "cannot be put down" (Library Journal). History and Current Events January 2015 newsletter.
