Read full description of the books:
Lee Harvey Oswald remains one of the most enigmatic figures in American history. Despite numberous explorations of Oswald and his motives, not the least of which is the mammoth Warren Commission Report, Oswald's life remains shrouded in mystery and few of the questions about Oswald have been satisfactorily answered.
In 'The Search for Lee Harvey Oswald: A Comprehensive Photographic Record', author Robert J. Groden explores the life of America's most famous alleged assassin. As the only visual study of its kind, the book presents a complete photographic record of Lee Oswald's life, from his early childhood years to a nearly frame-by-frame record of the moments of his death at the hands of Jack Ruby. Like its companion volume, 'The Killing of a President', 'The Search for Lee Harvey Oswald' contains more than 600 photographs and documents pertaining to Oswald's life, the people in it, and his actions leading up to November 22, 1963. The presentation of so much information allows the reader to note the inconsistencies in the official story of Oswald's life, in documents and testimony about Oswald, and even in Oswald's appearance over time. 'The Search for Lee Harvey Oswald' also presents a never before published photograph of a young Lee Oswald with the infamous David Ferrie, forever laying to rest the claim that the two did not know each other.
Clearly, Oswald was no ordinary man. The twists and turns of his life were unusual for the period in which he lived. His time in the Marines, his ostensible defection to the Soviet Union, his involvement with pro- and anti-Castroites, and his fateful presence at the assassination of President John F. Kennedy were remarkable for someone who was only twenty-four years old at his death. The Warren Commission Report's portrait of Oswald as a dangerous and unstable loner bent on self-aggrandizement is simply too easy and too pat. Lee was never tried of any crime; it was never conclusively proved that he assassinated the president or police officer J. D. Tippit. He may never have been found guilty if he had been brought to trial for these crimes. His all too convenient death precluded his defense.
More than anything, 'The Search for Lee Harvey Oswald' convinces us that the most likely scenario was that Lee was set up as the patsy in the assassination of President Kennedy. The book shows us that any combination of certain interest groups had the desire and the capacity to murder the president, and to place the blame elsewhere - on Lee Harvey Oswald. 'The Search for Lee Harvey Oswald' sheds new light on this cryptic man, his place in history, and the legacy of doubt he has bequeathed to us.
