"The New York Times bestselling authors of Mrs. Kennedy and Me share the stories behind the five infamous, tragic days surrounding JFK's assassination--alongside revealing and iconic photographs--published in remembrance of the beloved president on the fiftieth anniversary of his death.Clint Hill will forever be remembered as the lone secret service agent who jumped onto the car after President Kennedy was shot, clinging to its sides as it sped toward the hospital. Even now, decades after JFK's presidency, the public continues to be fascinated with the Kennedys--America's royal family. To mark the fiftieth anniversary of President John F. Kennedy's assassination, Hill recounts his indelible memories of those five days leading up to, and after, that tragic day in November 1963. Hill, as Jackie's guard, experienced those days firsthand. Alongside the famous photos everyone is familiar with, Hill provides a moment-to-moment narration evoking the feelings and emotions behind the images--clearing up the persistent conspiracy misconceptions along the way. He also shows us the little-seen photos of Jackie both before and after the terrible event, describing the poignant moments they shared, during that pivotal moment in history. Told movingly by a man who still wishes he could undo it all, Five Days in November is a rare and deeply personal look at the assassination that affected the entire world and changed the United States forever"--

Fascinating read! This book inspired me to learn more about JFK's assassination. It also made me realize how far technologically we have advanced.

"In Five Days in November, former Secret Service Agent Clint Hill recounts details of the last few days of President John F. Kennedy's life. Hill was the agent assigned to protect Jacqueline Kennedy, and he accompanied the Kennedys from their departure from Washington in November, 1963 to the moment of the President's assassination in Dallas (Hill was the one who jumped onto the trunk of the car, hoping to protect the couple). Hill provides a riveting historical testament in this portrait of the events through personal recollections and photographs." Biography and Memoir December 2013 newsletter
