"This is a 'must read' for anyone with an interest in the Kennedy assassination, its impact on the American political system, and the controversies that surrounded it then."-

Midwest Book Review (Oregon, WI)

"Reading the words of this infamous man is more illuminating than a dozen volumes of analysis of his character. This book fills a definite niche in American history and is long overdue Holloway uses professionalism and competent knowledge of history to create an engaging biography of an enigmatic man."-

Morgan Ann Adams, Charlotte Austin Review.

"A breath of fresh air in the JFK assassination literature."-

Judge Robert Finn, former FBI agent.

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.
