"What I like most in Maier's giant work is the spine of this saga, the all-important record of influence the great soldier-statesman-historian's life exerted on the future American president." -- Chris Matthews, host of MSNBC's Hardball, review in Chartwell Bulletin, The Churchill Centre

Jackie, Churchill's son and JFK's son

In WHEN LIONS ROAR, the relationship of the Kennedys and the Churchills comes full circle, as the second generation becomes quite friendly in the 1960s. Here's Jacqueline Kennedy, JFK Jr. and Randolph Churchill in Manhattan. The relationship between Jackie, Churchill's son and JFK's son is one of my favorite stories in the book and is very little known. "When Lions Roar: The Churchills and the Kennedys" is now out in paperback.

Reelz Documentary about Jackie Kennedy by NBC's Natalie Morales; Interviewed as 'When Lions Roar" author and Kennedy expert.

Over the weekend, please check out this documentary about Jackie Kennedy on Reelz, hosted by Natalie Morales of NBC News. I was interviewed as the author "WHEN LIONS ROAR: The Churchills and the Kennedys", which also refers to my 2003 book about the Kennedys that featured an interview with Rev. Richard McSorley, the Georgetown Jesuit who counseled JFK's widow after his assassination. The book quoted from Jackie's letters to McSorley and the priest's own diary that is housed in the Georgetown University Library. This material has been quoted by several others authors since my 2003 book appeared. Here's a clip from the program.



The nation turned to Jackie in the aftermath of JFK's assassination. How she handled her grief is explored in depth on Jackie Kennedy: Behind Closed Doors hosted by Natalie Morales Saturday night at 9p ET/8p PT.
