The first edition, first issue of this book is distinguished by the red wings in the center of the title page.

Only 250 copies of this second edition were believed to have been printed.
This book was edited by John Kennedy as a tribute to his brother, Joe Kennedy, who was killed in action during World War II, while serving as a bomber pilot. An incredible example of this scarce work by President John. F. Kennedy.
