Captains and the Kings by Taylor Caldwell


Captains And The KingsCaptains And The Kings by Taylor Caldwell

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A long awaited book, just arrived from USA through BM.

The tumult and the shouting dies,

The Captains and the Kings depart.

Still stands Thine ancient sacrifice –

An humble and a contrite heart.

Lord God of Hosts, be with us yet,

Lest we forget, lets we forget!

Rudyard Kipling

This is the story of Joseph Armagh, an Irish immigrant, and his family.

He struggled in order to survive as soon as his mother and two little brothers arrived in America but his perseverance made him a rich and powerful man, which only dream is to make his son the first catholic president of the United States of America.

This is Caldwell’s Kennedy’s novel, an allusion of this tragic American family.

There is a TV series Captains and the Kings (1976) based on this book.
