Subject: Kennedy, John F. -- (John Fitzgerald), -- 1917-1963 -- Assassination. Kennedy, Robert F., -- 1925-1968 -- Assassination. Kennedy, John F. -- (John Fitzgerald), -- 1917-1963. Summary: Using breakthrough reporting and interviews with long-silent sources, investigative journalist Russo and coauthor Molton have crafted a dramatic retelling of the time before, during, and after the JFK assassination. The book centers on the two opposed sets of brothers--the Kennedys and the Castros--who collectively authored one of modern history's most dangerous, and tragically ironic, chapters. Bobby Kennedy pushed for the murder of Fidel Castro and instead got the death of his beloved brother, a psychic blow from which he himself never recovered. Lee Harvey Oswald killed an admired president and traumatized a nation, but in so doing may have prevented a third world war. Built on thirty years of intense research--including discoveries so significant that they have rekindled CIA and State Department interest in the Kennedy assassination--this book provides extraordinary new facts that will force a reconsideration of how and why the Kennedy murder came to pass.

Reseña del editor:
