In this fascinating and masterful work of research, Gus Russo finally unmasks the hidden secrets that have surrounded the Kennedy assassination for 35 years. It is packed with never-before-seen documents and photographs, and never-before-known information - the result of tireless research and exhaustive interviews with countless key players in the Kennedy and Johnson Administrations. The question never asked was not WHO killed JFK, but WHY he was killed. And the answer to this question is the reason for over thirty years of government cover-ups. Gus Russo attacks this very question. Guiding the reader through the labyrinth of information and intrigue, he explores the assassination in context, explaining the atmosphere of the times as well as the actions that led, inexorably, to the defining moment of this generation.
From the Publisher
A comprehensive examination of the Kennedy assassination
For over 20 years, Russo has sought to compile a credible account of President Kennedy's assassination, and the foreign policy errors that set the stage for it. He is the investigative reporter who has most closely reviewed the files released by the JFK Assassination Records Review Board. Now, using first-time, on-the-record interviews with key players, never-before-seen photographs, U.S. documents recently declassified by the "JFK Act," and other materials personally obtained through FOIA requests, he has crafted what will likely become the definitive chronicle of a critical episode in American history.
