The Assassination Of President Kennedy.
In over 20 years of broadcasting, Brian Williams has reported from 23 nations overseas on many stories of national and international importance, including live coverage of the September 11th attacks. After his election night coverage during the 2000 Presidential Race, he was named Best Anchor by USA Today . .
Before his broadcasting career, he began working in the White House during the Carter administration as a White House intern. He later worked as an Assistant Administrator of the Political Action Committee of the National Association of Broadcasters in Washington. He also served as a voluntary firefighter in New Jersey. Williams attended George Washington University and the Catholic University of America at Washington DC.
The book I chose is about the assassination of the 35th President of the United States in 1963. This book tells the whole story of how President Kennedy was shot, killed and all the affects it had on the United States. .
2. The assassination of President Kennedy shocked people all over the world. Kennedy had only been President for 2 years and 10 months when he was shot dead. This occurred while visiting Dallas, Texas. He wanted to boost his support in the state of Texas for the upcoming election. The man who was charged and arrested was Lee Harvey Oswald. This case was never solved because right after his arrest he was shot and killed and never stood trial.
3. This book was really interesting , it gave a lot of detailed information about President Kennedy and summarized it. I thought it was a really good book.
1. I think the author's purpose in writing this book is to inform people of the day President Kennedy was killed, and to describe the days prior to and after his death. I learned things I didn't know about Kennedy and his Presidency, along with many other things about him.
2. It would have been more interesting knowing more about why the assassin committed the murder and how he planned everything, and if possible who really killed Kennedy and why.
