Product Description

Review

“One of the best narrative treatments of the four days from assassination to funeral.” — Wall Street Journal

“What Bugliosi has done is a public service... the literary equivalent of World War I, a kind of trench warfare for the mind.” — New York Times Book Review

“At last, someone has done it, put all the pieces together.... With this work, Bugliosi has definitively explained the murder that recalibrated modern America.” — Los Angeles Times Book Review

“By far the most accurate and detailed nongovernmental account [of] the assassination.” — Richard Mosk, member of the Warren Commission (Los Angeles Daily Law Journal)

“There is no question that Bugliosi succeeds in scorching the conspiracy theory terrain with ferocious, even definitive, plausibility.” — The Atlantic

“Few books are as gripping in their narrative, or as telling in their fine detail. This is a book that will make you weep.” — Philadelphia Inquirer

“What Bugliosi has done is reframe the narrative in such a compelling manner, in such an original writing voice, that he essentially shuts the conspiracy theorists down cold.” — The Oregonian

About the Author

Format: Paperback
It's true: Those of us alive at the time will "never forget" exactly where we were when the tragic news was given us, President John F. Kennedy "was shot at, and was killed, this day in Dallas." On that day a "wound" was inflicted, upon each of us, that, with time, has not healed, but has only "festered," and grown worse. WHAT, exactly, happened, on that fateful day in Dallas? With sober thought, let the healing begin. Vincent Bugliosi is rapidly emerging as one of America's finest historical writers. In this work, Bugliosi takes us through the events of Friday (Nov. 22), beginning at 6:00 a.m., with the President awakening in Fort Worth, to the burial in Arlington Cemetary on Monday. This is a minute-by-minute, investigation of events -- not just in Dallas -- but throughout America during those four days. To reconcile a "wound" of this magnitude, we, "the wounded," need to know every single event of those four dark days. Bugliosi delivers with an expertise that leaves the reader speechless. And so now, inspite of all the disinformation and just plain misunderstanding surrounding this event, the reader, finally, can rest. WE KNOW NOW, finally, what happened during that awful weekend in America. The "wound" is healed, but the "scar" remains. It always will.

HASH(0xa710aaa4) out of 5 stars No Photo Section in Kindle Edition? June 22 2010
By Beth - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Enjoyed the book very much, especially pleased with Mr. Bugliosi's writing style. I was a little surprised, though, to find that the entire photo section was omitted from my Kindle edition. It was a little frustrating to read a book that contains many references to photos and diagrams in a section that wasn't there. I called customer service and was told that perhaps the publisher wanted the photo section left out. He apologized and refunded my money.

HASH(0xa710acf0) out of 5 stars A good narrative of what probably happened but..... April 16 2014
By Greg G - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
But there are just too many questions that Bugliosi leaves hanging out there, never to be addressed. I am a big fan of V. Bugliosi's work so needless to say I was very disappointed when this didn't turn out to be the end all be all of books about the subject. There are so many suspect circumstances surrounding this assination, no wonder there is a truck load of conspiracy theories floating around. But Vince does not address them, just merely states these events as fact.

HASH(0xa710acb4) out of 5 stars Exceeded My Expectations Jan. 26 2013
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
As a "Baby-Boomer" I was just old enough to comprehend the consequences of JFK's assassination in 1963. Since then, I've read more than a few books on the subject and Mr. Bugliosi's effort rates as one of the best, along with Bill O'Reilly's "Killing Kennedy: The End Of Camelot." Although "Killing Kennedy" deals exquisitely with historical and biographical information on the people involved, Mr. Bugliosi gives you an extraordinary timeline of events as well as behind the scenes of the Dallas Police Department and its interrogations of Lee Harvey Oswald and Jack Ruby. You can draw your own conclusions on how much the Federal Bureau of Investigation helped/hindered a case in which it had no jurisdiction.

HASH(0xa710afa8) out of 5 stars Typical Bugliosi Attention to the Details Dec 18 2013
By WharfRunner - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
As a bewildered 12-year old when JFK was assassinated, my information came in bits and pieces, usually filtered through what my parents thought was relevant. As the 50th Anniversary approached, media coverage spiked and the "Conspiracy Theorists" were front and center. So what better way to look back objectively than through Vincent Bugliosi's historical perspective?

Bugliosi is perhaps the most thorough researcher I've encountered over the years, and his Helter Skelter account of the Manson Family activities in the late 60's is the gold standard of true crime writing. Parkland enjoys that same level of detail, with something in the area of 1,600 specific reference cites in the reading, along with several hundred explanatory footnotes along the way.

For the history-curious reader, every activity through every moment involving the principal players in this tragedy is detailed, from the Presidential entourage in Dallas, to Lee and Marina Oswald, to Jack Ruby, to the myriad of FBI, Secret Service, Dallas Police and Sheriffs and dozens of witnesses.

The only valid criticism I can make (which drops my rating one notch to 4-Stars) is that licensing issues prevented display of the graphics images and charts/diagrams referenced in the book to be seen in the Kindle version I purchased. The reader is left to either their own imagination or memories aged 50 years! If you want to know what happened, in sometimes almost excruciating detail, involving JFK's death, this is your definitive read. It's brilliant, logical and stands the "reasonableness" test in support of the Warren Commission conclusions as to who did it, how he did it, and a plausible explanation as to motive.

HASH(0xa7111024) out of 5 stars Parkland March 29 2014
By Stacy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Bugliosi does it again. Not only is he a gifted writer, he artfully incorporates impeccable attention to sourcing, as any good attorney has been trained to do. This book has special meaning for me personally, as the late Officer Tippit was my great uncle by marriage. Although my family members have shared with me some details over the years, such as the poignant telegram Mrs. Kennedy immediately sent to Mrs. Tippit following the murders, and the magnitude of the funeral itself, with its enormous turnout, Bugliosi shares many details I never learned from my private and pained family. I appreciate that. The Dallas PD saluted my uncle's sacrifice this past November by wearing black remembrance ribbons, and for their actions I for one am truly grateful. I also felt honored to be able to teach my daughter that while President Kennedy died much too soon, surely he finds solace as he looks down from above that the Congress in its grief unified to pass the Civil rights act of 1964, forever improving our great land.
