A typical Life publication?,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: LIFE The Day Kennedy Died:Fifty Years Later: Fifty Years Later: LIFE Remembers the Man and the Moment (Hardcover)
As long as you accept the official story (ie the one most but not all accepted initially) that the assassin was a man called Lee Harvey Oswald and that he was a lone nut, and no one else was involved, then fine. And Life has always been keen to promote this tale. Yes, you will see (or not) 'every frame of the Zapruder film' I guess - but they are very small and it is difficult to tell whether they are now in the correct order. Life likes to spin this tale; however history and both the HSCA and the ARRB say otherwise and you would have thought that after 50 years Life would be more objective. But then this is not a objective book.
The work is therefore, as far as the telling of the assassination is concerned, a reflection of the ability and wish of the publishers to tell you what could have happened (but didn't) that comes out here. If you want to find out what really did happen and why, don't accept this telling.
