Lee Harvey Oswald, accused assassin of President John Kennedy, has remained a mystery for 45 years. Using Oswald's letters, speeches, radio interviews, brief autobiography, job/college applications, diary, book about Russia, and words according to those who knew him, the editor has fashioned his autobiography from childhood to death. Jack Ruby's testimony and lie detector test are included for readers to learn his motivation in killing Oswald. New materials such as papers given to President Clinton by Premier Boris Yeltsin and documents found in 2008 in the Dallas safe of District Attorney Henry Wade are included.
