Firsthand accounts from the doctors on scene after JFK's assassination; "a unique addition to the . . . history of the tragedy" (Publishers Weekly). Photographic images of John F. Kennedy's assassination are burned into the collective American memory, but very few people were witness to the aftermath. In this poignant collection, the author gathers recollections from doctors and other medical staff in residence at Parkland Memorial Hospital on November 22, 1963. Rushed to the medical facility immediately after the shooting, the hospital is where the young president drew his last breath. Providing a glimpse into the efforts of a medical staff trying to save their nation's leader, this volume takes readers behind closed doors with some of the last individuals to see JFK alive. These eyewitness accounts of the horror following the assassination are collected here for the first time, providing a new perspective into a tragedy that continues to be studied today. Offering heartfelt recollections, these testimonials also touch on the conspiracy theories that continue to swirl around the assassination even now.
