    Polls reveal that 85 percent of Americans believe there was a conspiracy behind Lee Harvey Oswald. Some even believe Oswald was entirely innocent. In this encyclopedic, absorbing audiobook, Vincent Bugliosi shows how the public has come to believe such lies about the day that changed the course of history. Bugliosi has devoted almost 20 years of his life to this project, and is determined to show that, despite the overwhelming popular perception, Oswald killed Kennedy and acted alone.

    Would you listen to Reclaiming History again? Why?

    Yes, very easy to listen to and good, solid evidence given in a courtroom way.


    What other book might you compare Reclaiming History to and why?

    This is much like William L Shirers History of WW2


    What does Edward Herrmann bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Very good actor, great voice, easy to understand, a very easy listen


    Any additional comments?

    Facts, just the facts mam. This is good stuff. Very clean, very consice with no "fluff" or emotion. Starts off quick, builds up and even in the last part where the author spends his time debunking the conspiracy theories, it is easy to listen to. I've read many of the books he debunks and it is a breath of fresh air to hear someone who knows the facts, and knows how to present facts in a manner to allow a person to "judge" the case solely on the evidence.

    Very good book.

    What made the experience of listening to The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich the most enjoyable?

    The shear detail in this book is amazing. I've been learning about this subject for years and this book provides more detail and history than any other I've read.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    The subject for me has always been compelling enought to make me want to learn about in a single read. I found myself lost in its telling of the facts and losing track of time, but due to the total duration one would have to give up all other concerns and consume copious amounts of stimulant to get thru this without stopping.


    Any additional comments?

    Well done recounting of the amazing and terrible rise of a madman. Add in first hand experiances of the author to key turning points and this book is as close as it comes to being, if not is, the defacto standard of this dark and shameful part of world history.
