Book Description

24 Sep 2013
Parkland (originally titled Four Days in November) is the exciting and definitive narrative of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy on November 22, 1963. Releasing this fall, the movie--starring Paul Giamatti, Zac Efron, Jacki Weaver, and Billy Bob Thornton--follows a group of individuals making split-second decisions after this incomprehensible event: the doctors and nurses at Parkland Hospital, the chief of the Dallas Secret Service, the cameraman who captured what has become the most examined film in history, the FBI agents who had gunman Lee Harvey Oswald within their grasp, and Vice President Lyndon Johnson who had to take control of the country at a moment's notice. Based on Vincent Bugliosi's Reclaiming History--Parkland is the story of that day--the movie is produced by Tom Hanks, Gary Goetzman (Game Change, Charlie Wilson's War), Nigel Sinclair (End of Watch, Snitch), Matt Jackson (End of Watch, Snitch), and Bill Paxton, and written and directed by Peter Landesman.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best acconts 25 Jan 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
As one who has read nearly all the accounts of the events of 22.11.63 I found this an excellent read. If you are looking for conspiracy theories look elsewhere, if you are loking for a clear evaluation of the evidence this is for you.

When Vincent Bugliosi wrote Reclaiming History: The Assassination of President John F. Kennedy, published in May, 2007, the predecessor of the book being reviewed here, it was widely regarded as his magnum opus, a towering masterpiece which took twenty years and 1648 pages to write. In this new book about the assassination, Bugliosi has now winnowed the original manuscript to approximately 500 pages, eliminating nearly all the material used by the conspiracy theorists because he has essentially disproved the conspiracy idea.

Four Days in November, unlike Reclaiming History, is organized chronologically, giving dates and times, sometimes second by second, to make these real events come to life, and he includes seventy-nine photographs and drawings. The resulting achievement is stunning, an intensely readable and compelling work of scholarship which should eliminate, once and for all, the idea that there was more than one gunman. Photographs of the shooting, broken down into tiny fractions of a second, anatomical drawings of the wounds of President Kennedy and Governor Connolly, fingerprint evidence in the "sniper's nest" at the Book Depository, extensive photographs of the grassy knoll at the time of the shooting, and accounts from many eye-witnesses provide weighty, seemingly incontrovertible, evidence that Oswald was the lone shooter.

Bugliosi, who prosecuted Charles Manson in the Tate-LaBianca trial and then went on to write Helter Skelter: The True Story of the Manson Murders about that trial, is an accomplished writer who shares with the reader the kinds of details that he, as a prosecutor, counts as compelling evidence. At the same time, he is a painstaking recreator of scenes and observer of human nature.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautifully written 9 Oct 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Regardless of whether your a conspiracy theorist or not, there is no doubt that this is a beautifully written book. The minute by minute accounts are breathtaking in parts and finally adds the detail that so many accounts have been missing. The arrival into Dallas, the scenes at Parkland, the death of Officer Tippet (who is sometimes regarded as a mere footnote in history) the interrogation of Oswald - everything is there. I loved this book and was do gripped by it that I could'nt out it down, though as times I had too - when Bugliosi describes the attempts to revive the stricken president or his wife's reaction to the whole event - in places its pretty heartbreaking. But all in all a good read - if you've never read anything about the Kennedy Assassination (which is going to marked quite notably this year I'd imagine seeing as this year - 2013 - is the 50th anniversary) then I'd say start with this. Its a gripping but clear and concise read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Kept him occupied for hours 19 Feb 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this book for my Husband following the TV documentary. It is a most unusual book in that it has no chapters, and goes into the most minute detail.
My Husband was fascinated and as it is a large book it took him days and days to read it.
A really good read.

5.0 out of 5 stars 4 Days in november 29 April 2009
This is an amazing book of the terrible events in Dallas in november 1963. Virtually all facets and angles are dealt with minute scrupulous detail, for experts and the curious, this book is a rewarding read and very difficult to put down. clear your head of theories and stories, and immerse yourself into the events of that bright sunny winters day in Dallas.
The book brings along each character as they are needed in the sequence of events, the Aircraft, Vehicles, Firearms etc, all are clearly explained--in short This book is a brilliant documentary and is very highly recommended.

3.0 out of 5 stars enjoyable reading ? 28 April 2010
Four Days in November sets out to put some "flesh" on the dry bones of the Warren Commission Report, and also attempts to make it more "believable" to people who still have reservations as to its explaination of the events in Dallas, by anticipating readers' questions and debunking silly conspiracy arguments. Just beware, remember that Bugliosi's background, however, is in the prosecution business and his book, extremely well written, and a much enjoyable read as it is, is just that: prosecutor's evidence, setting up to prove that Oswald's did it, on his own, etc. I found the Jack Ruby section, where Bugliosi is at pains to describe how his shooting of Oswald was the result of a "spur of the moment" decision very laborious and somehow unconvincing.
I see this book as the anti-thesis of Mark Lane's early book "Rush to Judgement" which set out to prove Oswald's innocence.
I don't think one will be more advanced on either view after reading Four Days in November, but it is recommended read in asmuch as Bugliosi knows how to keep the reader's attention.

5.0 out of 5 stars Moving and Magnificent 5 Dec 2013
By Mr. G. Robinson VINE VOICE
Parkland is a shortened version of the author's definitive book Reclaiming History published back in 2007. Reclaiming History covered almost every possible facet of the Kennedy assassination in minute detail, including the conspiracy theories around at that time that had proliferated since shortly after the event. Parkland in the main covers the actual event in almost forensic detail and has left out most of the Conspiracy Theories. This means he has been able to produce a volume of a little less than half the size at about 630 pages. Even at half the size of the original it is still a substantial book which covers the four day period from the day of the assassination through to the burial of Kennedy and Oswald.

I am not an expert in this field or even particularly knowledgeable, having read perhaps 5 books on the subject in the last twenty years. As a result I am pretty much convinced that Oswald acted alone and that although flawed and possibly incomplete the Warren Commission and the House Select Committee reports, that Oswald was the lone gunman, are essentially correct in the main.

The book provides compelling evidence that Oswald acted alone, because there is no credible evidence to the contrary. Conspiracy theorists take a single piece of conflicting testimony, a possible incriminating connection, half-truths, genuine mistakes, badly worded statements from people who should have known better, and downright lies/exagerations and weave them into what they think of as credible evidence of a wholesale conspiracy. The Conspiracy includes The Police state and Federal, The Secret Service, The FBI. The CIA, The Mob, Castro, Arms manufactures, Lyndon Johnson, and any right wing organisation in Dallas at the time.

Quite a good read but not to be taken seriously. The author has his own agenda and conveniently ignores the many anomalies of the Warren Report. Read more
