Kennedy needed surgery for a disability he incurred during his service in World War II. Recuperation left him out of politics for the better part of a year, but instead of staying idle Kennedy began research on American figures that most interested him and wrote this book, which features his regard for prominent Americans such as John Quincy Adams, Daniel Webster, Robert A. Taft, as well as many others. By describing his reverence for these American greats, this book sheds light on Kennedy himself, who would later follow in the footsteps of his heroes.
