Comprehensive, detailed and conclusively compelling.

Mr. Horne, obviously, provided the ARRB invaluable service along with those of us who still research the JFK Assassination.

The book is very well written, so don't believe the nay-sayers here.

Like the author, I was totally mesmerized by David Lifton's book "The Best Evidence" when it was first published in 1981. I had read at least a dozen JKF assassination conspiracy books and felt that Lifton's was the most effective and convincing case and, in retrospect, it had the most influential impact on the case up until the releasing of Oliver Stone's monumental movie on the subject, "JFK". I felt that Stone's movie managed the impossible - to weave together the most important facts and inconsistencies into a generally believable explanation for what happened. Stone seems to have managed to include about 80% of what I considered the most relevant, the most telling, and the most comprehensive set of information about this wide, free-ranging and nation-destroying conspiracy.
So now I have a new hero - the author, Douglas Horne. This review is based only on the first of the five volumes of his report on the ARRB's (Assassination Records Review Board) work - attempting to secure the remaining undestroyed (or un-altered, as well as the obviously altered) documents and evidence that still exist. Douglas Horne is like a second generation conspiracy theorist picking up on the seminal work of David Lifton and progressing it further and in more detail in an attempt to clarify the true workings of the conspiracy, particularly the cover-up (at least in this first of five volumes). He has done a masterful job of first securing a position on the ARRB, then developing a working relationship with his immediate supervisor and finally exerting a major influence on both the selection of people to interview (both under oath and not) and on the direction and focus of the questioning. I can't wait to read the other four volumes and have already ordered them based on my reading of the first volume. This book is probably the most currently definitive work on un-covering the conspiracy and the subsequent cover-up. Bravo Douglas Horne!

There's an old saying: never say never. Well, this has been a strange and heady couple years with regard to literature in the JFK assassination case. After being a fervent believer in a conspiracy in President John F. Kennedy's death (from about the age of 12 to 41!), the Spring of 2007 yielded the Oswald-did-it-alone masterpiece "Reclaiming History" by the highly respected author and former prosecutor Vincent Bugliosi that, quite literally, made my world upside down and had me reassess everything I knew (or thought I knew) about JFK's murder. Result? While I still believed there were multiple conspiracies (plural) to kill Kennedy, and that (speaking as the leading civilian Secret Service authority) the Secret Service was grossly negligent on 11/22/63 in Dallas, at the end of the day, Oswald beat everyone to the punch, so to speak; for all intents and purposes, that solved it for me, albeit with a great deal of discomfort.

Then came ANOTHER masterpiece of even greater length (spread over 5 volumes) that, once again, turned my world upside down (some would say, right side up)!

Douglas P. Horne, the author of this latest masterpiece, "Inside The Assassination Records Review Board," has achieved a literary feat worthy of a Pulitzer Prize. His 5 volume study (5 books in one, so to speak) reads almost like the Defense's side of the case; the perfect answer to the Prosecution's ("Reclaiming History") masterful plea to the bench. I am amazed and highly impressed with the book as both a very inspired, well put together piece of art (it's a great read!) AND for the substance--and length---of the (counter) argument. While Vince Bugliosi did the seeming impossible back in 2007 (convincing me, however begrudgingly, that Oswald acted alone, despite others who wished JFK ill), Douglas P.

There has been a library-full of books and almost as many theories about the JFK assassination and two main US Govt inquiries and several smaller ones on aspects of the case but finally it is now proven- note "proven",not speculated or guessed at- beyond all doubt in Doug Hornes devastating 5 new books "Inside the Assassination Records Review Board" (short title) where he became Chief Analyst for military records,that JFK was assassinated in a coup d etat in Nov 63 thus showing that Garrison. the courageous Louisiana DA around whose investigation Oliver Stone based his famous film "JFK", was right way back at the Clay Shaw trial in the late 60s.

The huge strengths of Mr Hornes compellingly-argued and wide-ranging evaluative work are both his intimate knowledge of and his objectivity towards the background evidence,especially the medical evidence, built up over many years, to which has been added an equally detailed knowledge and understanding from released records and new interviews especially from those who took part in JFKs highly compartmentalised autopsy at Bethesda Naval Hospital which Mr Horne is therefore able to meticulously put together with a minimum of speculation and a maximum of reasoned and logical inference from the known and uncovered facts.In most cases these facts speak for themselves such is the precision, depth and overview of Mr Hornes research and his deep concern and honesty over the evidence itself.Where the evidence is not 100% for any judgment or opinion Mr Horne reaches, and he is right to presume his readership wants such evaluation ,he tells the reader this is so, and always allows the reader space to reach his/her own deductions,true marks of a liberal historian of deep scholarship and personal integrity.
