The best book ever written on the JFK assassination?
Undoubtedly..in my opinion....yes.
James Douglass gives a beautifully written account of the events which led to the assassination of JFK. There is material in this book which I had never known about before. For example, the tragic fate of Ralph Yates who was inadvertently caught up in events which occurred in Dallas before JFK's assassination.What happened to Ralph Yates was a microcosm of the evil that was loose and up on its hindlegs and prowling Dallas and indeed prowling America in those now far off days and in the following days and years and an evil which still lurks and is still ready to show its hand in America - even today.
Also the extraordinary story told by Robert Vinson - another man who was brushed by the wings of history but who, unlike Ralph Yates, survived to tell his amazing story. Douglass deals with events surrounding the Berlin Wall crisis, the Cuba Crisis and the Bay Of Pigs fiasco.Events in Vietnam are covered and also how the assassins planned to kill JFK in Chicago only days before Dallas. There is so much more. A beautiful book.

Mr. A. N. Jarvis says:
Bolden's conviction was a very, 'iffy', affair!
I've been trying to find out Kennedy's reaction, if any, to the resignation of his protege'. (Bolden.)

I did caution you against reading too much James Douglass, didn't I? I'm afraid that you really are lost now.
You ponder, "I've been trying to find out Kennedy's reaction, if any, to the resignation of his protege'. (Bolden.)"
JFK had no reaction at all to Bolden's requested 'resignation'. JFK was dead when Bolden was convicted!!!
Keep reading the guff, Jarvis, I appreciate the laughs.
