About the book “The Assassination of JFK”
On Friday 22 November 1963 the 35th President John Fitzgerald Kennedy was assassinated at Dealey Plaza in Dallas. When the shots rang out in central Dallas the digital watch on top of one of the office buildings read 12.30. Less than an hour later, the suspected assassin Lee Harvey Oswald was arrested and charged with the assassination of president Kennedy and the murder of police officer JD Tippit.
The presumed assassin never managed to be brought before a judge. Two days later he was murdered by nightclub owner Jack Ruby. Since these dramatic November days two official investigations and countless books and theories have tried to solve the mystery of who killed JFK in Dallas. Fifty years after the assassination the story and mystery lives on.
Did the Warren Commission get it right when it concluded that Lee Harvey Oswald was the lone assassin? Or was there really a conspiracy behind one of the all time greatest murder mysteries?
The book “The Assassination of JFK” tells the story of the events in Dallas as they unfold, relates the many proofs and theories, and what has been uncovered in the last fifty years of research.
The book gives a comprehensive overview of what really happened in Dallas, and where matters stand now. It is based on years of thorough research and the acclaimed publication from the same author in 2003.
Praise for the book by Danish newspapers

“He writes in the preface that he wrote the book he himself would have liked to read about the murder, but which apparently does not exist. The result is an excellent book which deals thoroughly with the main characters, murder, investigations and conspiracy theories.”

“Thomas Ladegaard manages to achieve one of the finest things a writer can achieve – namely to get the reader to think further and reflect. If you are interested in Kennedy, conspiracy theories or American history, you have probably already bought the book, and if you have not, you should do so …”
