About this item

Recounts the murder of John Fitzgerald Kennedy and how gunshots on a Dallas afternoon not only killed a beloved president but also sent the nation into the cataclysmic division of the Vietnam War and its culture-changing aftermath.

A riveting historical narrative of the shocking events surrounding the assassination of John F. Kennedy, and the follow-up to mega-bestselling author Bill O'Reilly's "Killing Lincoln"

More than a million readers have thrilled to Bill O'Reilly's "Killing Lincoln," the page-turning work of nonfiction about the shocking assassination that changed the course of American history. Now the anchor of "The O'Reilly Factor "recounts in gripping detail the brutal murder of John Fitzgerald Kennedy--and how a sequence of gunshots on a Dallas afternoon not only killed a beloved president but also sent the nation into the cataclysmic division of the Vietnam War and its culture-changing aftermath.

In January 1961, as the Cold War escalates, John F. Kennedy struggles to contain the growth of Communism while he learns the hardships, solitude, and temptations of what it means to be president of the United States. Along the way he acquires a number of formidable enemies, among them Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev, Cuban dictator Fidel Castro, and Alan Dulles, director of the Central Intelligence Agency. In addition, powerful elements of organized crime have begun to talk about targeting the president and his brother, Attorney General Robert Kennedy.

In the midst of a 1963 campaign trip to Texas, Kennedy is gunned down by an erratic young drifter named Lee Harvey Oswald. The former Marine Corps sharpshooter escapes the scene, only to be caught and shot dead while in police custody.

The events leading up to the most notorious crime of the twentieth century are almost as shocking as the assassination itself. "Killing Kennedy" chronicles both the heroism and deceit of Camelot, bringing history to life in ways that will profoundly move the reader. This may well be the most talked about book of the year.

After reading Killing Lincoln I had some pretty high expectations with this one. Well, this book met those expectations, and then some. It was most difficult to put down once started. It provided many previously unknown facts to me about JFK's personal habits and relationships. I have recommended this book to many friends already, and not just the book but also to purchase it online through Wal-Mart at a great discount!

Another good history book my son ask for it for his birthday after receiving the Lincoln book for Christmas. Both books are recommended.

Great read. Would recommend for anyone over 18 and over. I've learned more from this book than I did in school about social issues.
