Summary "Inga Arvad was the great love of President John F. Kennedy’s life. She was also the special guest of an adoring Adolf Hitler's at the 1936 Berlin Olympics. In a life more fascinating than fiction, Inge was an actress, foreign correspondent, Washington columnist, explorer who lived among a tribe of headhunters, one of Hollywood’s most influential gossip columnists, and a suspected Nazi spy. The latter caught the attention of the FBI...which nearly got Kennedy, an ensign in the Office of Naval Intelligence, cashiered out of the Navy. Instead, his romance with Inga set him on a path to becoming a war hero, which set the stage for his political career."--Dust flap
