" An uncensored minute-by-minute account of November 22, 1963 "
" More than four years were spent researching this book.
Jim Bishop read 16,500,000 words from 92 different sources, and interviewed over 300
individuals - including President and Mrs. Johnson - to produce an uncensored
minute-by-minute account of the day President John F. Kennedy was shot. "
" This vast and meticulous research has unearthed a whole series of startling facts that fill
in a great number of what, until now, have been mysterious gaps in that terrible day.
Among the striking revelations that appear in this book are:
President Kennedy died before the doctors said he did;
For several hours the United States was immobilized and could not have retaliated
against an enemy attack;
Why Lyndon Baines Johnson boarded Air Force One, thereby enraging the Kennedy group;
Why President Johnson was sworn in before leaving Texas, despite the Kennedys'
insistence that the plane take off immediately;
Why Jacqueline Kennedy refused to change her blood-spattered clothing;
Lee Harvey Oswald, in fact, wanted to be captured;
How Oswald's legal rights were violated by Dallas police;
Why the autopsy description of the President's wounds differed from the statements
released by the Parkland Hospital (Texas) doctors. "
" Jim Bishop is the only man, among the hundreds of authors who have written about
President Kennedy's assassination, who was given an interview with President and Mrs.
The author also enjoyed the confidence of President Kennedy, who, on October 24, 1963, at
the White House, discussed assassination with him. "
" This book, a moving and terrifying document, makes you feel that you are
watching everything that happened - as it happened - in Dallas and Washington.
It will stand for years as the most complete account of that tragic day. "
