Oswald: Assassin or Fall Guy?

This is a remarkable book which was published in 1964 before the the Warren Report.

Part 1 lays out the emerging concerns about Lee Harvey Oswald as the lone gunman and assassin of John F Kennedy. Key questions including: how many shots? were there shots from locations other than the Texas School Book Depository? was there a 2nd Oswald impostor? was the ageing rifle and Oswald's marksmanship really capable of the deed? These questions and others are analysed in a rational and lucid way.

Part 2 considers evidence of a wider conspiracy involving elements of the CIA, political extremists, oil barons and other groups who may have gained from the assassination. This section is weaker (more time and evidence was needed to build the case) but nevertheless provides a fascinating early glimpse of other possible assassination scenarios.

The book gains considerably from the fact that the analysis is based on contemporaneous evidence (witness statements, newspaper reports etc) and is therefore free from the accretions of the last nearly 50 years. The book is also very well written. Released on Kindle through a special arrangement with the author's relatives - this is a fascinating read and a great bargain. Snap it up while you can!

I have had an interest in the JFK assassination since reading this book in 1974.This, and it's follow up "Oswald - the truth" (presumably not re-printed)pointed the way to serious doubts as to the "Official" version.
Written before Warren , it contained many of the now well known features of the 'conspiracy' tales. How did the Author know this stuff back then? I suspect that a LOT of people knew what was going on...but the subsequent cover-up, for the next 50 years,did it's job - and still goes on.
I need to re-read this book.No doubt many of the items raised have not stood the test of time,with subsequent evidence, knowledge, testimonies etc...but the general idea that Oswald was low level intelligence agent, framed,and that possibly 3 shooters (with their locations)seemed, as I recall, to be here...first and very fresh in many witness versions.
The well maintained theories were here in 1964.
From memory , his second book jumped to conclusions that seemed very forceful.I wonder how they stack up now.

This is by far the best book I have read on the assassination bearing in mind that it was written so soon after the event. Information that has come to light in the following years has proved the author right. A first rate well researched book that I could not put down until I had completely read it.

A great book, tells us what most of us thought. What a corruption there is in the Dallas police force, the chief justice, FBI and certain members of the presidents security staff, to mention but a few. The Presidential Committee !!!!! They did'nt want an answer that did'nt suit.

One of the earliest if not the first book on the assassination and to my mind after all these years along with Mark Lanes "rush to judgement" probably the best.

Taking into account when this was written its one of the best tomes on the subject.. How anyone who has read the evidence
can still believe LHO was solely responsible for the assassination of JFK is beyond me! Highly recommended.

This book is a little on the repetitive side, but the author does make some valid points. It is well worth reading.
