The late Dr Charles Crenshaw is to be commended for this fine, classic 1992 book on the case, along with his able co-authors. It is great to see this #1 NY Times best-seller rereleased and available for mass consumerism once again (in the interim, it was rereleased as "Trauma Room One" in 2001). This book created quite a stir at the time, especially after Dr. Crenshaw's appearance in April 1992 on "20/20".

After Dr. Crenshaw's book was a huge best-seller (and his appearance on the aforementioned major television program), he was attacked by the medical journal JAMA, insinuating, quite insultingly, that Dr. Crenshaw was not even there at Parkland when JFK was treated! Needless to say, there is much contemporary documentation supporting Dr. Crenshaw's appearance and duties (Warren Commission testimony AND exhibits; contemporary newspaper accounts). JAMA was rightfully counter-attacked by physicians, the public and Dr. Crenshaw's legal team, who won a substantial monetary settlement and an apology.

I highly recommend this classic book!

Doctor Crenshaw, a renowned surgeon, who attended to JFK in the trauma room of Parkland Memorial Hospital, chronicles a comprehensive and detailed analysis on the medical findings on the shooting of JFK. Doctor Crenshaw, along with a team of E.R. doctors, desperately tried to tend to the medical needs of JFK, shortly after the fatal bullets blasted through the president's head. Doctor Crenshaw portrays the horror of November 22, 1963 in Dallas, that paralyzed the nation. The author describes the devastating health condition of the president in his last moments of life, as he describes a political and personal catastrophe of one terrifying weekend in his medical career, that has haunted him for several years. Doctor Crenshaw reveals how the government sought closure, how despair filled the air, how much the American people demanded the truth, and offers through facts of how and why it happened. The assassination of JFK sparked an outrage as Camelot was shattered, and the colorful portrait of truth in a government vanished in an overwhelming impact of the tragedy, and its results on our country as it suffered a stunning blow of credibility. The author presents documentation on a critical failure, and how the WC report was less than sincere in fulfilling its mission. Doctor Crenshaw discusses how the WC failed to engage in a thorough investigation, how the FBI concluded that Oswald was a lone gunman, and how the resulting investigation was a sham, as credible witnesses were ignored. This compelling presentation recounts the firsthand observations and analysis of medical procedures and findings in the Trauma Room, as Doctor Crenshaw documents these events with medical precision.Read more ›

As a fellow physician, I appreciated very much Dr Crenshaw's dispassionate and detailed recall of this important history of our American past as his story rang true to the surgeon's plight, getting it right in real time. A courageous man and I trust this, his story.

Unfortunately, I'm not a doctor nor am I a forensic scientist. If I were I might be in a better position to evaluate the claims made in this book. I'm not even one of those conspiracy theory advocates. However, after reading this book I might be leaning toward the theory that a second assassin participated in President Kennedy's death.
Based on the information provided by the late Dr. Charles Crenshaw regarding what he saw at Parkland Hospital and other corroborating reports by observant individuals, this book offers a compelling and convincing argument that there was more than one shooter and that the trajectory of the fatal wounds would have made it impossible for Lee Harvey Oswald to be the shooter.
Even if one totally ignores Crenshaw's claims of a phone conversation with LBJ, the one thing that stands out to me is that the doctors who treated Kennedy in the ER were never fully interviewed or really interviewed at all. Like many who witnessed what went on immediately after the shooting, Crenshaw was ignored. The Warren Commission and their report which I only read parts of, seemed to take a cookie cutter approach in resolving the inconsistencies. They took the favored scenario and made the facts fit by ignoring the rest.
Despite this account being a tad dramatic at times, i think when you witness history and are inadvertently sucked into something so much larger than yourself everything regarding it has a tendency to be amplified. What remains is a cohesive and detailed account of what was observed in the ER and more importantly why the government was so intent on burying relevant testimony that expressed a varying point of view.
I liked this book for its detail and general attention to facts and the back story to what was observed at the hospital that day and subsequent attempts to quiet Crenshaw.

I have always felt there was more than one reliable source to explain the conspiracy of this historical event. Even though it is written by a medical doctor,it is easy to read and understand. With the 50th anniversary within days, this book is a must read.
