I've read it through several times, and stopped and checked the DVD with it at the appropriate points.

The amount of research which was involved in compiling all of this information is simply staggering to contemplate.

John Armstrong's phenomenal "Harvey and Lee" does NOT deal with the actual assassination of Presiudent Kennedy!

I have been studying the JFK assassination for almost thirty years and by now have read scores of books on the case.
But why am I even mentioning this? John Armstrong's phenomenal "Harvey and Lee" does NOT deal with the actual assassination of Presiudent Kennedy! In its pages you will find no treatment of the ballistic or medical evidence nor any forays into the identification of exactly who fired the shots.
Rather, what you WILL find in this massive, profoundly-researched book is the result of years of private research performed by a great American named John Armstrong, a successful businessman who attended a college class in Texas on the assassination and who subsequently became intrigued by the "two Oswalds" theory that Professor Richard Popkin and other early researchers first posited during the 1960s.
Amazingly, at his own expense Armstrong literally traveled all over not only the U.S. but also the globe to personally interview people who'd had direct contact with the figure[s] known as "Lee Harvey Oswald" and -- perhaps even more importantly -- to obtain the ORIGINAL DOCUMENTS related to the case, many of which had never before seen the light of day or been published in any other book. (Early on the author discusses his belief that researchers should not rely on the work of others but should instead go to the original documents and evidence. Armstrong certainly practiced what he preaches, and the reader is all the more the winner for it.)
Armstrong's most essential finding -- backed-up by huge amounts of evidence, images of a small portion of which are contained on a CD which accompanies the book -- is that there were two "Lee Harvey Oswalds," a U.S.-born one who he refers to as "Lee" and a (likely foreign-born) one referred to as "Harvey.

I have read lots of books on Kennedy assination speculation. Armstrong main thesis in this book is about the double Oswald theory and who the two double Oswald's were. He even goes further and he says there were two Margurite Oswalds put in place to keep this double Oswald CIA project going. I have read books about the double Oswald theory before Armstrong wrote his book, like Richard Popkin's the Second Oswald and Rob Cutlar and WR Morris's book Alias Oswald. And even Jim Maars dedicated a whole chapter to the theory in his book Crossfire.
I have to commend Armstrong on his in depth research in this book. Armstrong really has gone through the opened FBI files of thousands and thousand of pages when they were opened to the public in '78 regarding the keneddy assasination. Armstrong is definetly on to something here of two oswalds and two margurites when he cites evidence after evidence (a lot of real estate records, and eye witness of accounts of two different oswalds and margurites) of double Oswalds. He speculates this was a CIA project to get one Oswald (a hungarian american who knew how to speak Hungarian therefore he picked up learning Russian very quickly) into the USSR as a defector using the real Oswald's name and identity. If you were the USSR and you were some american born Hungarian named Korovich would'nt you think he was a CIA plant if he was trying to defect to your country. Therefore the need to have two Oswalds to complete this project. This Hungarian american Oswald was working for the CIA and his mission was to collect data once he got into the USSR. Armstong cites a lot of factual evidence to back this up. Ok, this might sound ridiculous to some people who live in todays world of Google satilites and youtube videos of people all over the world.

Format: Hardcover
I have read, and read Armstrong's book. It is full of new investigations in LHO and all of his contacts, which were generally dismissed right away by the Warren Commission. All the records (military, school, all areas of acuaintences (including family), the interviews about 'LHO' that were never researched before are here and well documented. The book isn't the best edited piece of work I have ever seen, but it's a JFK rearchers dream. It's written, not in topic order especially, but Chonological Order, from when Armstrong thinks the gov't was into making CIA projects a viable commodity. Oswald's CIA activities to even his relative CIA Op visiting him in that secret CIA base which Oswald was in at Atsugi, Japan are not left out, and very well explored. The Intro or Prologue are indeed inviting, as it speaks of Conspiracy before conspiracy from LHO himself in a great time period before the assassination to one Will Fritz of the Dallas Police Department fame that was the chief interrogator of the 'arrested LHO'. He cites that fact from the WC itself. So, if you want to know more about Oswald(s), and the intense 'setting-ups' of the arrested Oswald for the killing of one JFK, this is the one that you need to have, and will never put down.

I'll add my voice to those praising this outstanding work. I've read it through several times, and stopped and checked the DVD with it at the appropriate points. A fantastic work of scholarship on a host of details that have been overlooked or not pointed out loudly enough. This book answers a lot questions, such as why J. Edgar Hoover put out the memo in June of 1960 about someone using "Oswald's" birth certificate when the false defector Harvey was in the Soviet Union (the real Oswald was trying to buy vehicles in Florida as part of a CIA gun running operation to Cuba), why the real LHO's half-brother John Pic couldn't identify a picture of "Lee Harvey Oswald" at the Bronx zoo as his brother to the Warren Commission (because he had never met or seen "Harvey"), the discrepencies in height, weight, identifying features such as scars, a missing mastoid bone behind the ear, tonsils, a tatoo, etc not to mention teachers, schoolmates and neighbors identifying to two different people as Lee Harvey Oswald. The dissenter reviewer states that part of his disbelief is that the book claims that back in 1953 the CIA set this up as means to conduct an assassination.Read more ›
