3. JFK: An American Coup D’etat: The Truth Behind the Kennedy Assassination (2016)

 Best JFK Books Worth Your AttentionEver since President John F. Kennedy was gunned down in Dallas 50 years ago, various theories have swirled around what was a key event in American—and world—history. Despite the conclusions of the Warren Report—that the President had been assassinated by a lone gunman, Lee Harvey Oswald—many people doubt that to be true. Indeed, President Nixon later admitted on tape that the report was "a hoax committed on the American people." John Hughes-Wilson, a former colonel in British Intelligence, set out in 2007 to go through the millions of words and…

 Best JFK Books Worth Your AttentionIn this book, Philippe J. Cassard, as a European observer of the United States where he lives periodically, takes a close look at the distortion of truth concerning the assassination of President Kennedy; a law of silence kept alive, well beyond the fiftieth anniversary of his death. The author gives us a concrete narrative which informs the reader less on the rumors which have fueled the many conspiracy theories but more on the impressive number of facts supporting the irrefutable evidence of a coup d’état. Inspired by his trips to the scene of the assassination and by his participation in several conferences on the…

9. JFK – A Very British Coup: The Definitive Truth of the Assassination (2019)

 Best JFK Books Worth Your AttentionThere is an absolute mountain of both circumstantial and physical evidence plus hundreds of eye-witness testimonies, that points to the ‘real’ perpetrators in the Kennedy assassination plot and therefore I believe it is now fair to conclude that it was certainly not an individual ‘lone nut’ gunman who carried out the assassination and neither was it one isolated group such as the CIA, the Mafia, MI6, the Secret Service, the FBI, the Cubans etc. Whilst each of these individual elements may have had their own specific agendas and motives for carrying out the ‘coup,’ for that it most surely was, there can now be no doubt…

 Best JFK Books Worth Your AttentionExploding the Truth: The JFK, Jr. Assassination presents evidence of a conspiracy to assassinate the only surviving son of President John F. Kennedy and considers the motives that many powerful forces had, to make sure he never set foot in the White House. Divided into two parts, Part One examines the potential motives the Bush family, the C.I.A., and perhaps even Israeli intelligence, had to eliminate JFK, Jr. Part Two systematically dismantles the official version of events, that JFK, Jr., crashed his plane due to pilot error, and examines both the evidence of a government cover-up at the crime scene, and the extensive eyewitness…
