    PlaidStallion: Granted, O’Reilly blasted the Red Cross over the fact that most of the funds for September 11 victims went to the Red Cross instead of the victims, in Stone's book:

      Kennedy did approve [Maxwell] Taylor’s other recommendations and expanded U.S. involvement. The number of U.S. military personnel in Vietnam jumped from 800 when Kennedy took office to over 16,000 in 1963. The United States began resettling villagers at gunpoint behind barbed-wire-enclosed compounds guarded by government troops and using herbicides to defoliate areas where guerrillas operated. The long-term environmental and health effects would prove disastrous for Vietnamese and Americans alike.

Given to me by my mom in 2020 from the CCHS library collection. I listened to this as an audio book during exercise LF CARAT in 2014 and was my first of the "Killing" series. It was also my first book ever read about JFK and it provided a very detailed account of his life and presidency that I never knew, many of the details were disappointing to learn about him as a man and a leader. It also helped give me insight into what took place with his assassination which proved interesting when we later lived in Dallas and often visited the "X" where he was shot and killed, as well as the 4th floor museum. Highly recommend.

Well written, an easy read with some inside info. ( )

I thought the book was very well written. Very respectful, not salacious! While it didn't skip over the philandering etc. it also didn't try to sensationalize it either. You just wanted to keep yelling at JFK "Don't Go to Dallas!! Don't GO!!" knowing that is has been too late for years! ( )

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 Allen 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.

Like his first book on Lincoln, O’Reilly puts forth the facts of the assassination of one of America’s favorite presidents. He seems to purposely avoid the numerous conspiracy theories that have come about over the last 50 years since the Kennedy assassination. Even though many of us know the time line of events, O’Reilly keeps things short and to the point thus keeping up a nice pace and easy reading. Definitely recommended for those who know all the facts and those interested in getting to know them. ( )
