Dallas 1963 free pdf In the early 1960s, Dallas was a city brewing with political passions, full of extreme and unlikely characters, many of them dead set against a Kennedy Presidency--rabid politicos like fanatical conservative Bruce Alger and defrocked military general Edwin A. Walker- oil baron H. L. Hunt- and W. A. Criswell, leader of the largest Baptist congregation in the world- along with a host of gangsters, unsung civil rights leaders, strippers, billionaires, and marauding police.
Breathtakingly paced, DALLAS 1963 presents a clear, cinematic, and revelatory look at the 20th century's most significant and terrifying political event. Beginning with the campaign for Kennedy's election, and set against a nation in transition, Bill Minutaglio and Steven L.
