A vivid recreation of the moments before, during, and after president John F. Kennedy's assassination, based on original audio from ABC interwoven with commentary from Diane Sawyer and fresh interviews with the reporters, secret service agents, and medical personnel who were there. It's harrowing to hear the first breathless reports of the shooting, as well as the somber accounts from Kennedy's funeral, and the little details bring the terrible events back to life. Although the sound quality here is reliably excellent, there's a certain amount of repetition in the material that perhaps makes it best suited to JFK obsessives or those looking for thorough teaching tools.
This edition of Three Shots Rang Out: The JFK Assassination 50 Years Later is an audio-only ABC News special created exclusively for Audible and hosted by ABC World News Anchor Diane Sawyer. Sawyer takes listeners back to Dealey Plaza in Dallas, Texas, on November 22, 1963, for a “you are there” exploration of the day of U.S. President John F. Kennedy’s assassination. Key moments include:
These real time audio reports, eyewitness recollections from 1963, and new analysis make for a powerful experience of this fateful day in recent history.

This ABC special doesn't dive into the conspiracy theories or political agendas - they stick with first hand accounts and information.
The radio clips and interviews from the day of the assassination and following weeks make this story unlike anything I've ever heard. The different interviews from the hospital to Oswald's landlord are unexpected, but incredibly interesting.
Clear and informative.
As a millennial, I have no first hand experience of life 50 years ago. My parents were babies in 1963. Unfortunately, my knowledge is gained through books and movies because our history teachers did such a poor job. I am greatly appreciative of information like this that give a first hand account as if I were there all those years ago.
Brought back memories. Very informative and entertaining. Recommend for all interested Americans. Fact based book.
This is a very good compendium about the assassination of President Kennedy. I liked it because it had a lot of the actual news coverage from the day. I highly recommend this for anyone who has an interest in the events of November 22, 1963.
Listening. to the broadcasts and commentary took me back to my sophomore year when I heard about Pres. Kennedy's assassination like ni other documentary I have researched. Many of the same emotions resurfaced and I realized why I thought there was hope for his survival when there was not. Good insights. Fascinating and frustrating still.
This was a great book everyone should listen to! I learned alot more details in the assassination of JFK. I'm keeping this one in my audible library for my family to listen to.
I look forward to hearing disclosure in the year 2017. The government kept the Zuprada film locked away for 12 long years was really disturbing.
I was 9 yes old when this happened. I stayed glued to the tv or radio for the next 4 days , in shock , in grief. Even as I child I knew who Pre. Kennedy was. I so remember him winning the presidency ! I was elated. Over 50 yrs and all these feelings come rushing back
An avid reader who works too much to actually read in the traditional manner she now consumes audiobooks at her job, driving, and running.
This was just a superb and amazing examination of the JFK assassination. Growing up after JFK was assassinated I never had the same sense of shock that people who lived through it did. It was their 9/11 and this documentary really brought it to life for me. In fact, I got a little teary eyed at some points listening to it. I can't recommend listening to this enough.
"Just the facts about JFK"
Its the original news footage and reports laid bare for you to decide what happened, I initially wanted more It lacked any strong opinion either way, but left me deciding my own.
