Publisher's Summary

An intimate portrait of an iconic American from the men closest to him

As a politician, John F. Kennedy crafted an image that inspired and thrilled millions - and left an outsize legacy after his tragic murder. Only a select inner circle was privy to the man behind Camelot.

In Johnny, We Hardly Knew Ye, Kenneth P. O'Donnell and David F. Powers, two members of Kennedy's "Irish Mafia," give an unflinching, honest, and intimate portrayal of the Kennedy family and JFK's presidency. As they recount Kennedy's journey from his charismatic first campaign for Congress to his rapid rise to national standing, culminating on a November day in Texas, O'Donnell and Powers reveal the inner workings of a leader still mourned today.
