Hail to the Chief (1)

Although I have no intention to read biographies of every US President I will naturally, through other endeavours like the World Wars or the Cold War, come across them from time to time. I’m also interested in some of the characters that have filled that post over time – especially people like Kennedy & Nixon – who have become iconic for a number of reasons. So far, as with most things here seemingly, its early days but who knows where such reading will lead, right? The roll call so far is as follows – and as usual I’ll do an ‘update’ every 6 months to see how we’re doing….

Richard M Nixon (37) 20th January 1969 – 9th August 1974

All The President’s Men by Carl Bernstein and Bob Woodward

John F Kennedy (35) 20th January 1961 – 22nd November 1963

One Minute to Midnight – Kennedy, Khrushchev and Castro on the brink of Nuclear War by Michael Dobbs
