Killing Kennedy: The End of Camelot
John Fitzgerald Kennedy or JFK; the name evokes a hundred pleasant memories. Unfortunately, the memories are always followed by the gruesome recollections of his assassination by a young drifter. His meaningless death led to a dramatic change in culture, attitudes and events that affected America and the entire world.
The Killing Kennedy: The End of Camelot by Bill O’Reilly chronicles the events that led up to the assassination and the events that resulted from it. JFK might have been a charismatic leader but he lived in interesting times. The book covers the Cold War escalation that existed during the era and his struggle to deal with an aggressive developing Communist footprint. It’s an interesting read for people who knew the legend of JFK but are not really aware of what the era was all about. The book captures the hardships and temptations that the president had to deal with. JFK makes several policy decisions that seriously affect this relationship with top leaders like Castro and Nikita Khrushchev and Bill O’Reilly sets the tone for the book with his really interesting conclusions. And when Bill O’Reilly does write, people listen. The author is the host of the popular program THE O’REILLY FACTOR on Fox News. He has written nine books on political events and more than five million copies of his books have been sold in the US. Although, he is considered to be a conservative commentator, his views of Kennedy are a must-read for people who want to know what contributed to the death of JFK and the events that followed. His last book, ‘Killing Lincoln’ sold more than 1.5 million copies worldwide. The new book is due out in the fall and we consider this to be the must-read book for Kennedy fans.
