Description
On 22 November 1963, US President John F. Kennedy was assassinated. The events of that day have been the subject of debate for five decades. The Warren Commission published its findings the following year - Oswald acted alone - but the report did little to quell conspiracy theorists. Warren assured that history will prove us right.' In this eye-opening account Howard P. Willens, one of the few surviving members of the Commission, sets out to prove just that. Drawn from rarely seen notes and journals, History Will Prove Us Right tells the complete story of the investigation.'

display_description"On November 22, 1963, President John F. Kennedy was murdered in front of hundreds of onlookers. Everything was over in mere seconds, but the events of that day have been the subject of heated debate for five decades. The presidential commission tasked with finding the truth, headed by then-Chief Justice Earl Warren, published its findings the following year--Oswald had acted alone--but the report did little to quell conspiracy theorists. Many seized on what they saw as inconsistencies in the report and branded the whole investigation a cover-up. Warren himself calmly dismissed the criticism, assuring his fellow commission members that 'history will prove us right.' Now, in this eye-opening new account of the Commission and its findings, Howard P. Willens sets out to prove that Warren's advice was prescient. Willens, one of the few surviving staff members of the Warren Commission, supervised the investigation from the very beginning and has waited until now to silence the critics and well-intentioned armchair detectives. Drawn from Willens' own journals and extensive notes on the investigation--which have never before been published--History Will Prove Us Right tells the true and complete story, perhaps for the first time, of every aspect of the investigation into one of the century's most harrowing events from a uniquely first-person perspective." --
