KIllingKennedy

I remember. 

I can recall exactly where I was and what I was doing in 1963 when I first learned of JFK’s assassination in Dallas, Texas.  Though only six years old at the time, my young spirit sensed clearly that that event was hugely significant.  

In the non-fiction work Killing Kennedy (O’Reilly & Dugard, 2012) do a superb job of detailing the context and events leading up to the assassination of the 35th president of the United States.  Though I’ve read non-fiction and fiction about JFK, watched both documentaries and conspiracy films, and listened to countless analyses of the “story” of John F. Kennedy’s assassination, none have painted the picture so clearly and succinctly as is done in Killing Kennedy. 

I learned a lot that I didn’t know about JFK. And I learned a lot I didn’t know about Robert Kennedy, and Lyndon Johnson, and Jackie Kennedy.  I learned a lot I didn’t know about Lee Harvey Oswald, Fidel Castro, Marilyn Monroe, Jack Ruby, Marina Oswald, Nikita Khruschev, Martin Luther King, Jr., …


A powerful work, worth your time and learning.
