The Day Kennedy Was Shot characters ¸ 104 A minute by minute narrative account of President John F Kennedy’s assassination The Day Kennedy Was Shot captures the action mystery and drama that unfolded. 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

The Day Kennedy Was Shot characters ¸ 104 Telling tracks all of the major and minor characters JFK Lee Harvey Oswald Jack Ruby Jackie and illuminating a human drama that many readers believe they know. Since it was written in 1967 the author assumes a single person was involved in the assassination He is concerned with what happened that day rather than who the perpetrator isI found at least one uaint reference both in this book and the one by William Manchester the reference to Negro when talking about an African AmericanThe 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 investigationI may add to this review as I think of things

The Day Kennedy Was Shot characters ¸ 104 On November 22 1963 Author Jim Bishop’s trademark hour by hour suspenseful storytelling drives this account of an unforgettable day in American history His re. Review title Paper time travelJim Bishop was a popular non fiction writer in the 1960s whose metier was hour by hour A Day in the life of accounts of politicians and public figures Here he applied the techniue to the death of President Kennedy whose stunning assassination November 22 1963 was a generation defining event not eualled until September 11 2001 It was an early and popular entry I bought a 1968 Funk Wagnalls book club edition at a library book sale on the Kennedy assassination analysis bookshelf which has become very crowded indeed While the basic outline of events is common knowledge I must confess that I was surprised by the number of odd elements about that day that I didn t know if you don t count Steven King s time travel novel which is centered on that day this is the first book I have read on the event and the realities of responding to the sudden devastation that I had never considered For a couple of examplesWhen Lee Harvey Oswald s mother who was estranged from her sons and hadn t seen Lee for over a year came to the police station after seeing the news coverage the first thing she did was reuest a private interview with one of the detectives working on the case and proceed to claim that her son had been under orders to kill Kennedy by the CIA After killing the President and walking calmly out of the book depository building he went back to his rented room and put on a jacket and grabbed his revolver which he used to kill a police officer who had pulled over because Oswald fit the description of the President s killer It was actually this killing for which Oswald was arrested and initially officially charged After the parade Kennedy and his entourage were headed for a luncheon speech at a convention center where 2500 were waiting and confused by the Presidential party speeding by to the hospital with sirens blazing Most of the Cabinet were in the air after leaving Honolulu heading to Japan for a diplomatic conference when they got the word and did an immediate U turn to head to WashingtonBishop switches between Dallas and Washington and between key players Dallas police Jacueline Kennedy and the dead President s team Oswald and his wife and mother and the FBI CIA and the Secret Service which spanned both cities all while staying to the hour by hour format This makes for a lot of uick cuts but the narrative thread stays coherent even though it might have helped to have a list of key characters by their role and location as an appendix And while Bishop lists his sources in the back he doesn t footnote his material so it isn t possible to follow up in his sources the most important of which he says is the Warren Commission report which is the always referenced but often criticized main source for all Kennedy assassination books Most of all it is still possible to read Bishop s history as both history of the event and as itself a part of the history of America s response to the event of its generation His writing style reflects the writing of his time but 50 years later still speaks to the generation defined by September 11 Even though there are newer editions try to find an original 1968 hardback paperback or book club edition you will be holding a piece of history in your hands as you time travel to November 221963
