Beware any book which mentions Gen. Edwin Walker, but fails to mention his numerous arrests and convictions for public lewd behavior [attempts to pick up young males in public bathrooms]!!! Book contains many lies which have long ago been thoroughly refuted [or as the disinformation specialists like to say // debunked \\ ]. Too, too many lies to even begin! Book is almost pure trash [good section on the Kennedys' integrating of Ole Miss, detailing the number of US Marshals wounded] - - to mention Ruth Paine, but not mention her family name, Avery, connecting her to the Rockefeller family [and related to Janet Avery, wife of John Foster Dulles, brother of Allen Dulles, CIA director fired by Kennedy], and that her sister and brother-in-law were career CIA! Not to mention her husband [the two of them rented to Lee Oswald and helped obtain his job at the Texas School Book Depository] Michael Paine, and that he was related to Henry Cabot Lodge on the Cabot side, whom Kennedy was about to fire. [John Kerry, present SecState, is a cousin once removed from Michael Paine on the Forbes side, Paine was the connected guy, after all!] Robert Mueller, former FBI director was grandnephew of Richard Bissell, one of three CIA types that Kennedy fired, the other being Gen. Cabell, the grandfather of Mueller's wife, thus making her the grandniece of Dallas Mayor Earl Cabell, Gen. Cabell's brother, and the mayor who ordered the detour of the president's motorcade the day of his murder!
I found this to be a thoughtful, well written account of the three years leading up to the Kennedy assassination. The book discusses what was trending in Dallas in the early 1960's and introduces us to a variety of colorful local characters like Ted Dealey and General Edwin Walker. Recommended for the general reader interested in the period.
Great review of the political, social and racial climate of Dallas in 1963. This isn't your typical Kennedy assassination recount.
