Countdown to Dallas: A Riveting Account of JFK's Assassination - Paul Brandus' Latest Book Release

Countdown to Dallas, by Paul Brandus, is a riveting and detailed account of the events leading up to the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. As a member of the White House press corps and White House Correspondents Association and author of Amazon best-seller, Jackie, Brandus brings a unique perspective to the story, shedding light on some of the lesser-known details surrounding the assassination.

The book delves into the backgrounds of both Kennedy and Lee Harvey Oswald, exploring the very different worlds in which they lived. Brandus provides insightful analysis of the cultural, social, and political climate of the time, painting a vivid picture of the events that led up to that fateful day in Dallas.

One of the book's most interesting aspects is the revelation that a second person was on the 6th floor of the Texas School Book Depository minutes before the assassination. However, not everything is what it seems.

Brandus also sheds light on how Oswald got his job at the Depository and provides a fascinating insight into his personality and willingness to use violence. For example, Brandus reveals that Oswald had previously discussed wanting to kill another president further adding to his dangerous mindset.

The book also draws parallels between the sinking of the Titanic and how we continue to process information about the Kennedy assassination. Both events were shrouded in mystery and conspiracy theories, and both continue to capture the public's imagination more than a century later.

Overall, Countdown to Dallas is a meticulously researched and fascinating account of one of the most significant events in American history. Paul Brandus brings together the various strands of the story and presents them in an informative and engaging way. This book is a must-read for anyone interested in the Kennedy assassination or the political and cultural climate of the early 1960s.

Countdown to Dallas: The Incredible Coincidences, Routines, and Blind "Luck" that Brought John F. Kennedy and Lee Harvey Oswald Together on November 22, 1963, is now available on Amazon.
