A riveting historical narrative of the shocking events surrounding the assassination of John F. Kennedy, and the follow-up to mega-bestselling author Bill O'Reilly's Killing Lincoln More than a million readers have thrilled to Bill O'Reilly's Killing Lincoln, the page-turning work of nonfiction about the shocking assassination that changed the course of American history. Now the iconic anchor of The O'Reilly Factor recounts in gripping detail the brutal murder of John Fitzgerald Kennedy—and how a sequence of gunshots on a Dallas afternoon not only killed a beloved president but also sent the nation into the cataclysmic division of the Vietnam War and its culture-changing aftermath. In January 1961, as the Cold War escalates, John F. Kennedy struggles to contain the growth of Communism while he learns the hardships, solitude, and temptations of what it means to be president of the United States. Along the way he acquires a number of formidable enemies, among them Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev, Cuban dictator Fidel Castro, and Allen Dulles, director of the Central Intelligence Agency. In addition, powerful elements of organized crime have begun to talk about targeting the president and his brother, Attorney General Robert Kennedy. In the midst of a 1963 campaign trip to Texas, Kennedy is gunned down by an erratic young drifter named Lee Harvey Oswald. The former Marine Corps sharpshooter escapes the scene, only to be caught and shot dead while in police custody. The events leading up to the most notorious crime of the twentieth century are almost as shocking as the assassination itself. Killing Kennedy chronicles both the heroism and deceit of Camelot, bringing history to life in ways that will profoundly move the reader. This may well be the most talked about book of the year.

Read the Chilling Truth Behind the Assassination That Shocked the World. At 12.30hrs on Friday 22 November 1963, US President John Fitzgerald Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas, Texas. He was the 35th President of the United States, the first Roman Catholic President, and the fourth President to be assassinated in less than one hundred years. The news of his death shocked the world, and everybody seems to remember with great clarity where they were and what they were doing the moment the tragic news was broadcast.Craig Cabell's book reveals the sniper gauntlet that lay in wait for President Kennedy in Dallas that fateful day. His ballistic analysis of the famous Zapruder film, along with other photographs, film clips, eye-witness and medical accounts, proves that the assassination shot came from in front of the motorcade and not behind it, proving that a conspiracy really happened and that Lee Harvey Oswald was not guilty of assassination. He then explains how the killer escaped and looks at three other sniper dens that all fit the same scenario perfectly, sharing the same escape route for the other members of the sniper gauntlet, thus constructing a concrete explanation as to why the true gunmen were never found.Oswald described himself as the patsy in the assassination of President Kennedy and this book vindicates that claim, proving him innocent of assassination, but still embroiled in the conspiracy at the Texas School Book Depository.Avoiding conjecture, Cabell crafts a factual book about one of the most famous days in history, at last placing Oswald in his rightful context and exposing the dark, salubrious, world of professional snipers. As a former Small Arms desk officer for the Ministry of Defence and author of 17 previous history books and biographies, Craig Cabell provides the final word to mark the 50th anniversary of the assassination of President Kennedy.

Please note: This is a companion version & not the original book. Book Preview: #1 In 1943, three American patrol torpedo boats cruise the Blackett Strait in the South Pacific, hunting Japanese warships. The skipper of the boat bearing the number 109, a young second lieutenant, slouches in his cockpit. He has shut down two of his engines to conceal PT109 from Japanese spotter planes. #2 Kennedy was the skipper of the boat, and he was responsible for allowing such an enormous vessel to sneak up on his boat. He was twentysix, rail thin, and deeply tanned. He had no interest in pursuing a leadership position in politics, but the sinking of his boat would make him a hero. #3 Finally, John F. Kennedy takes charge. He explains that while the specks of land might be more distant than the island of Gizo, which appears close enough almost to touch, they’re less likely to be inhabited by Japanese soldiers. #4 Kennedy swims to another nearby island, which is closer to a channel known as the Ferguson Passage. He uses the ship’s lantern to signal any passing PT boats that might venture in that night. But he never finds that sandy beach.

William Manchester's epic and definitive account of President John F. Kennedy's assassination--now restored to print in a new paperback edition.

Best-selling, Oxford-educated investigative author Joseph P. Farrell takes on the Kennedy assassination and the involvement of Lyndon Baines Johnson and the Texas "machine” that he controlled. Farrell says that a coalescence of interests in the military industrial complex, the CIA, and Lyndon Baines Johnson's powerful and corrupt political machine in Texas led to the events culminating in the assassination of JFK. Without the help of the Dallas police chief and others of the Texas underworld, including Jack Ruby, the Kennedy assassination could not have taken place. Farrell analyzes the data as only he can, and comes to some astonishing conclusions. Chapters include: Oswald, the FBI, and the CIA: Hoover's Concern of a Second Oswald; Oswald and the Anti-Castro Cubans; The Mafia; Hoover, Johnson, and the Mob; The FBI, the Secret Service, Hoover, and Johnson; The CIA and "Murder Incorporated”; Ruby's Bizarre Behavior; The French Connection and Permindex; Big Oil; The Military; Disturbing Datasets, Doppelgängers, Duplicates and Discrepancies; Two Caskets, Two (or was that Three?)

Despite an avalanche of disinfo being dumped by the major media over the decades, the assassination of JFK has finally unraveled. A renegade CIA station working with a Sicilian secret society orchestrated the hit, but their participation would never have been so massively covered-up unless they were working for elements higher up the chain-of-command. Whether you are new to this case, or a longtime researcher, you will find these penetrating essays both entertaining and enlightening.
