reviews
      • premium: False
      • source: Daniel Schorr, NPR commentator
      • content: This astonishing book sheds new light on the assassination of President Kennedy and the role of its many players, including the Castros. It reads not only like a thriller, but like a movie scenario.
      • premium: False
      • source: Joseph A. Califano, Jr, former Special Assistant to Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara and Special Assistant for Domestic Affairs to Lyndon Johnson
      • content: Brothers in Arms has the pace of a page-turning thriller as it reveals the truth about an era... Each chapter peels off another layer of the subterfuge and cover-ups... What Robert Kennedy and Lyndon Johnson kept secret...is at last available to the American people and the world.
      • premium: False
      • source: Diane McWhorter, author of Pulitzer Prize-winning Carry Me Home
      • content: Fashion[s] heroic investigative reporting into a Shakespearean reckoning, lush with psychological and historical nuance, of the fateful symmetry between the personal and the political... The wisest explanation I've seen of the Kennedy assassination.
