    If I didn t disagree with the blanket assertion this book makes that Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone or, for that matter, even ACTED on that day, I would have given this book a higher rating It s a great hour by hour account, even though I don t believe that much of it is true.

    I purchased this book to add to my JFK Assassination library shelf The publication date, in 1968, places Jim Bishop s The Day Kennedy Was Shot in the first dozen books in this genre, after the Warren Report It s closest relative must be the historically flawed The Death of a President from William Manchester Although Bishop, like Manchester, follows the absurdities of Arlen Specter and the conclusions of the President s Commission, that Oswald acted alone etc., I found this book, with I purchased this book to add to my JFK Assassination library shelf The publication date, in 1968, places Jim Bishop s The Day Kennedy Was Shot in the first dozen books in this genre, after the Warren Report It s closest relative must be the historically flawed The Death of a President from William Manchester Although Bishop, like Manchester, follows the absurdities of Arlen Specter and the conclusions of the President s Commission, that Oswald acted alone etc., I found this book, with it s hour by hour format, to befactually accurate than Manchester s work I have even found new pieces of information in this book that I have not come across before However, the factual flaws are many, and proves that like everyone, this author did not fully study the twenty six volumes of depositions, testimonies and reports etc., from Earl Warren s Commission.The Dallas Police had cancelled all leaves for the motorcade through Dallas Not true.Roy Kellerman was head of the Dallas Secret Service Office Not true, Forrest Sorrels.When Bishop lists the occupants of the motorcade s pilot car he fails to include George Whitmeyer, commander of Dallas Army Intell unit The President of the U.S.,feeling the tiny grains hit his face, began to lift both hands upward in fright How could Bishop write this Did he have access to the Zapruder film The bullet went through the clothing between the bottom of the neck and the right shoulder The only president that had the neck of a giraffe was Gerald Ford 5 inches below the top of shirt collar 1 inch to the right of spine Try it yourself, if you find your neck, see your doctor With the hole in his throat breathing as he breathed, it is doubtful that he could have uttered an articulate sound I couldn t agreeSo why does Bishop ignore Roy Kellerman s statements to Sibert O Neil and his W.C testimony that JFK said I ve been hitget me to a hospital Something that no other limo occupant heard, and the president could not have uttered with a bullet through his larynx Officer B.J Martin was sickened He had been riding left front of the limo No DPD cycle escort was at the front of JFK s limo.Officer J.D Tippit was not named John Nor Jefferson Davis or any other combination He was simply J.D Most doctors who saw Kennedy s head wound thought that it came from the rear As far as doctors at Parkland were concerned, the 5mm throat wound was one of entry, and the head wound at back right of JFK s skull was never described as at autopsy, nor did autopsy photographs show what was witnessed at Parkland It was standing upright between two triple rows of cartons, squeezed tight Referring to the rifle discovered Mauser Mannlicher Carcano, photographs show it laying horizontally, part underneath boxes, between rows Not easy to stash and run down four flights of stairs, unseen, to meet Officer Baker in first floor lunch room.Bishop s list of Bethesda autopsy personnel is incorrect and incomplete There was a ragged wound in the neck, obviously a tracheostomy Not obvious to the untrained monkeys at Bethesda in charge of the autopsy I have never understood why this was not clarified by Admiral George Burkley, who was in attendance at Parkland and Bethesda There is evidence that a bullet was removed from JFK s body at autopsy, that Burkley turned it over to the FBI and that Burkley received a receipt for it The Treasury Dept still has the receipt but the bullet hasn t been seen since What had appeared to be a surgical incision was proved to be an exit wound When JFK s autopsy was finished Humes learned the throat wound, that he surmised had been caused by a piece of skull bone, was in fact a tracheostomy, cut through a bullet wound that Dr.Perry in Dallas described as a wound of entry.So, apart from the bending over backwards to accommodate the official government fictions, this book has a historical place, is well written and for it s day holds an interesting list of source material The author was a journalist columnist who had already published The Day Lincoln Was Shot as well as The Day Christ Died , which I find rather disturbing

    The first i ve ever read of the minute by minute account of that day Purely fascinating reading couldn t put it down even as long as it is Came upon it in the public library which is the greatest bookstore imo.

    Don t believe the Lee Harvey Oswald bit for a second Were it not for this malarkey, I would have given it five stars, because I actually found the exhaustive detail spellbinding.

    Book of the Year 2018 Since my teens, I have readbooks than I can count on the Kennedy assassination I knew a lot This is the first book I read where I finally understood it Spoiler alert Oswald did it The book is a comprehensive biography of the date November 22, 1963 as a political rally, a murder, a media event, a transfer of power, a criminal investigation, and a funeral How it started and ended How people s feelings and emotions change throughout the day It s an hour by Book of the Year 2018 Since my teens, I have readbooks than I can count on the Kennedy assassination I knew a lot This is the first book I read where I finally understood it Spoiler alert Oswald did it The book is a comprehensive biography of the date November 22, 1963 as a political rally, a murder, a media event, a transfer of power, a criminal investigation, and a funeral How it started and ended How people s feelings and emotions change throughout the day It s an hour by hour chronology, starting at 7am at Fort Worth and ending at 4am when Kennedy s body was returned to the White House It was written in 1968 and by the style of the prose, people were still obviously on edge The flowery words, raw emotions and obvious anger helped me put those events and feelings in context I heavily recommend it to anyone looking for a good introduction to the subject, along with PBS Frontline s 1993 documentary Who Was Lee Harvey Oswald

    Kennedy historyI was 11 years old when the president was shot and on the playground, so world politics didn t mean much to me at that time I only learned what I knew from history books This book opened my eyes to the events that day it was totally enlightening from start to finish A must read for history buffs.

    A blow by blow account of President Kennedys last day on earth,written at a time when the event was still in recent memory.Jim Bishop had written a glowing account of the Kennedy White House in A Day in the Life of President Kennedy,published shortly before the events in Dallas,and this book is written in the same frame of mind.Still it is a well written account of November 22,1963 and captures the morning in Fort Worth,the arrival at Love Field and the fateful trip into downtown Dallas,and the A blow by blow account of President Kennedys last day on earth,written at a time when the event was still in recent memory.Jim Bishop had written a glowing account of the Kennedy White House in A Day in the Life of President Kennedy,published shortly before the events in Dallas,and this book is written in the same frame of mind.Still it is a well written account of November 22,1963 and captures the morning in Fort Worth,the arrival at Love Field and the fateful trip into downtown Dallas,and the chaos at Parkland Hospital.It is required reading for anyone interested in the Kennedy Assassination

    Since it was written in 1967, the author assumes a single person was involved in the assassination He isconcerned with what happened that day rather than who the perpetrator is.I found at least one quaint reference, both in this book and the one by William Manchester, the reference to Negro when talking about an African American.The book is, also like Manchester s, filled with fascinating detail about all the people involved in that day Particularly helpful is the last chapter where Bi Since it was written in 1967, the author assumes a single person was involved in the assassination He isconcerned with what happened that day rather than who the perpetrator is.I found at least one quaint reference, both in this book and the one by William Manchester, the reference to Negro when talking about an African American.The book is, also like Manchester s, filled with fascinating detail about all the people involved in that day Particularly helpful is the last chapter where Bishop gives his opinion about some of the people closely related to the killing and investigation.I may addto this review as I think of things
