One of the earliest and most credible refutations of the Warren Commission's conclusions. Thompson tackles the ample photographic evidence of the assassination, which includes the Zapruder film, films shot by three others that day, and a mountain of still photographs shot by various witnesses. Many of the photographs were published here for the first time.
Thompson, a philosophy professor, analyzes and presents the evidence clearly and logically in this unique reconstruction of those fateful seconds in Dealey Plaza, and from this objective evidence concludes that three gunmen fired four shots at the Presidential motorcade.
Includes extensive appendices giving a master list of witnesses, Cyril Wecht's criticism of the JFK autopsy, time calculations made from the Zapruder film, etc.
