Killing Kennedy by Bill O'Reilly & Martin Dugard

This books gives an in depth focus on Kennedy's presidency, the Bay of Pigs, the Cuban Missle Crisis, the fear American's began to have about the Soviet Union and how Lee Harvey Oswald was involved with the Soviet Union and what led him to assassinate President Kennedy. Nothing is held back in this book. Kennedy's numerous affairs and ailing health are addressed along with how this affected Jackie and the White House staff. You can feel and emphasize with Kennedy's mishap involving the Bay of Pigs. You feel the stress and anguish Kennedy tries to hide addressing the nation about how the Soviet Union is providing Cuba with nuclear war heads and how these war heads are to be aimed at American soil. You can feel Jackie's despair at Kennedy's numerous affairs, but the conflict as this is the man she truly loves. You can see how the FBI keeps hounding  Lee Harvey with a feeling something is not right with this man. Unrest is in American as blacks are fighting for equality and Martin Luther King Jr is now on the seen giving moving speeches. America is in a season of change and all the events of change leading up to the assassination are beautifully written.
