While every one of Harold Weisberg's usually self-published books were awesome and informative, "Post Mortum" was his magnum opus. This massive volume is a must read for all JFK assassination researchers. His intricate examination of every minute detail of the medical evidence might not interest the casual reader, but the data he unearthed here is remarkable and priceless. I have to confess that Harold Weisberg was one of my personal heroes; the evening I spent at his home in Frederick, Maryland back in the early 1980s was one of the most memorable of my life. While he was cranky and cantankerous, with a bitter writing style that turned many people off, no one can question the invaluable contributions he made to assassination researchers. His personal courage was reflected in the way he took a bus into Washington, D.C. almost every day for many years, at an advanced age, in order to file numerous Freedom Of Information lawsuits against government agencies that fought their release every step of the way. All Americans interested in the truth about what happened in Dallas on November 22, 1963 owe him a huge debt of gratitude. If the truth about who killed President John F. Kennedy is ever allowed to be known, Harold Weisberg will be hailed as a great American hero.

As the leading civilian expert on the Secret Service, I highly recommend this brilliant volume by the legendary Harold Weisberg. Of particular value are the many documents reproduced at the end of this lengthy book.
History Channel, author of two books, in over 32 other author's books, etc.

Written between 1967 and 1975 with assistance from Howard Roffman. Many more pages had to be left out for lack of room. Written before the HSCA and ARRB, the book is now a bit dated, but it chronicles Weisberg's heroic attempts to use the Freedom of Information Act to pry classified documents out of the government's hands. In this case, the focus is on autopsy-related documents, and why the Clark Panel's findings in 1968 did not agree with those of the Warren Commission.
