Additional Information

On November 22, 1963, President John F. Kennedy was murdered in front of hundreds of onlookers.

Everything was over in mere seconds, but the events of that day have been the subject of heated debate for five decades. The presidential commission tasked with finding the truth, headed by then-Chief Justice Earl Warren, published its findings the following year--Oswald had acted alone--but the report did little to quell conspiracy theorists. Many seized on what they saw as inconsistencies in the report and branded the whole investigation an elaborate cover-up. Warren himself calmly dismissed the criticism, assuring his fellow commission members that "history will prove that we are right."

Now, in this eye-opening new account of the Commission and its findings, Howard P. Willens sets out to prove that Warren's advice was prescient. Willens, one of the few living staff members of the Warren Commission, supervised the investigation from the very beginning and has waited until now to silence the critics and well-intentioned armchair detectives.  Drawn from Willens' own journals and extensive notes on the investigation--which have never before been published--History Will Prove Us Right tells the true and complete story, perhaps for the first time, of every aspect of the investigation into one of the century's most harrowing events from a uniquely first-person perspective.

I picked this book up in a bookstore browsing the new releases table. I should have looked at the contents more because this book is not what I expected. What this book is NOT is a rigorous defense of the conclusions of the Warren commission. Instead it as a defense of the process of the Warren commission. The author was a high-level member of the staff and this is really a historical account of the what / when / why of the actions the commission took.

The author goes on page after page after page describing the inner workings of the commission like who they were deposing and who was doing what and why this or that was put into the final report instead of a footnote and so forth and so on. This is literally the entire book.

Some people who are rating this book 5 stars obviously are interested in that kind of thing. I am not and got bored by it. I guess for what the book is trying to be, it does a fine job of being that. However, it is not my cup of tea... Read more
This book is an amazing piece of work. It was well written and provides such great detail. The book also reveals how the commission conducted its work, and also how the team learned a decade later that Federal Agents failed to tell the truth on critical matters. The book does also acknowledges some of the commission’s mistakes, but most importantly sheds light on many of the theories that conspiracist’s have attempted to use to persuade the public eye otherwise. Great read.
Very interesting perspective on the assassination this book explains some of the mystery surrounding the Warren Commission report. I'm not comfortable with some of the explanations offered, particularly on the autopsy photo controversy, but it is an interesting perspective. It's very dry, there is no dramatic "ah hah" moment, it literally put me to sleep a few times. If you're an assassination buff it's worthwhile to read "the other side" of the argument written by one of the original investigators. If you believe that Oswald and Ruby were lone nuts who acted independently then there is absolutely nothing new presented by this book.
