I think my price for the used book was $3.69 and shipping with Prime membership was free. It arrived in terrific shape from the seller. It cost a lot less than a new one at $290. As for the content, it is incredible. I was in the ninth grade when JFK was assassinated. I couldn't read the book until my wife finished it. She reminded me that most of what she was reading was things she had never known because she was in the fifth grade when JFK was killed. I had the good fortune to attend a lecture by Willie Allen. Mr. Allen took the simulated picture of the target viewed through a riflescope from he window in the Texas School Book Depository. Mr. Allen renewed my interest in this tragic event. The book was well illustrated, and I loved it.

This is book is history in your hands. It covers in detailed pictures those very horrific days in 1963. I was nine years old and i remember reading this book years later in junior high school. To have it in my personal collection is a real gift. The pictures of the state funeral are in great detail, the pictures coverage of the entire weekend walks you through history and tragedy. For those of us that lived through it, it refreshes memories long ago forgotten and for those not alive, it allows you a walk through a most tragic weekend. The photography makes the book. From the picture of JFK in the crowd in Ft. Worth that Friday morning to the picture of the floral arrangements on the fence of his grave at Arlington late night Monday after his state funeral. What I found most interesting is the listing of every head of state in attendance at the state funeral - listed in the back of the book - of over 80 countries and over 200 dignitaries in attendance.
Unfortunately because my copy is 50 years old and it is paperback, it fell apart in my hands when i first browsed through it but I yet am grateful for the history it entails. A great book that I show off to young family members.

I an biased about this book because I was on staff with UPI in our Philadelphia bureau when this event took place. Frank Johnston, who was a staff photographer also in the Philadelphia UPI bureau, was covering JFK that day in Dallas and won a Pulitzer for one of his photos. He later joined the staff of the Washington Post. Merriman Smith, dean of White House correspondents and also on staff with UPI was in the press car behind JFK when the shots were fired. I think they both did a great job and others in creating this book. I still have a first copy.

As the leading civilian expert on the Secret Service, I modestly recommend this somewhat dated and dry book,for it is a true classic of that terrible November weekend in 1963. Some nice pictures.
