  • An Amazing Historical Work May 13, 2010
    by TRTNW

    Somehow the author has managed to cram an incredible amount of detail and still produce a compelling and hard-to-put-down historical piece.

    Anyone interested in the JFK assassination and wanting real facts instead of speculation and rumors, this is the book for you.

    Highly recommended! I wish Manchester were alive to document some of the contemporary figures and events of our day.

  • Amazing detail Nov 1, 2009
    by johnbellgmc

    As one who possesses an endless amount of curiosity regarding the Kennedy assassination I found this book to contain a great deal of detail I had not read or been informed of elsewhere. The first 155 pages are an exhaustive review of the days and hours leading up to the moment the shots were fired in Dealey Plaza that fateful day.

    The next 100 pages or so examine the immediate aftermath at Parkland Hospital in Dallas all the way back to Washington D.C. via Air Force One with his widow and the new President Johnson.

    I would highly recommend this book to anyone wanting to know details such as what President Kennedy and the First Lady spoke of the on the eve of the assassination before retiring as well as what the administration was focused on in general as told by a wide variety of its members as interviewed by the author.

    Unlike any material I have ever read before one is left with the incredible abruptness, shock, and then slow, agonizing realization that everything had changed at 12:30pm, November 22, 1963.
