As the world still reeled from the tragic and historic
events of November 22, 1963, William Manchester set out, at the request of the
Kennedy family, to create a detailed, authoritative record of President John F.
Kennedy’s death, including the days immediately preceding and following the
assassination. Through hundreds of interviews, extensive travel, and firsthand
observation, and with unique access to the proceedings of the Warren
Commission, Manchester conducted an exhaustive historical investigation,
accumulating forty-five volumes of documents, exhibits, and transcribed tapes.
His ultimate objective—to set down as a whole the national and personal tragedy
that was JFK’s assassination—is brilliantly achieved in this galvanizing
narrative, a book universally acclaimed as a landmark work of modern history. Download and start listening now!
