Its based on the premise that after the Cuban Missile Crisis, JFK had begun to turn towards peace. While I have always believed there was a grand conspiracy behind the assassination, I have always had my doubts about his commitment to peace. No longer. After reading this incredibly well researched and well written book, there is no doubt in my mind that Kennedy was completely isolated and at war with national security. Douglass also does an amazing job showing how the patsy Oswald was being moved along the chess board by the powers that be. A very sad, but somehow inspiring book.
