A skinny, sickly boy always in the shadow of his older brother
A WWII hero who saved his shipwrecked crewmen in the Pacific Ocean
The first Catholic president, and also the youngest man ever elected
The man who saved the lives of his PT-109 crewmen during WWII and became the 35th president fought-and won-his first battle at the age of two-and-a-half, when he was stricken with scarlet fever. Although his presidency was cut short, our nation’s youngest elected leader left an indelible mark on the American consciousness and now is profiled in our Who Was…? series. Included are 100 black-and-white illustrations as well as a timeline that guides readers through this eventful period in history.
