History at its Best

By examining the impact this national tragedy had on those closest to President Kennedy, this inventive series breathed life into a nearly 60-year-old mystery. Each episode was compelling, rich and extremely well-made. From the firsthand interviews to the meticulously constructed timeline, this is a fascinating listen for casual history students and JFK enthusiasts alike.

Exceptional audio program that captures the spirit of the country in the eyes of those closest to JFK, notably Jacklyn’s pain and suffering and LBJ’s accepting his new role as commander in chief
