Audible Editor Reviews

Any American alive and old enough to remember will certainly recall where they were on November 22nd, 1963 - the fateful day President John F. Kennedy was shot.

We Were There, narrated in respectfully subdued tones by Robin Bloodworth, is a gripping firsthand account from the Dallas doctors and Parkland Memorial Hospital staff who frantically administered treatment to the President as he lay dying of his gunshot wounds. Two days later, Lee Harvey Oswald would also die at the same hospital.

A truly compelling and often chilling insider listen from that forever unforgettable day 50 years ago.

Publisher's Summary

A true collective account of President John F. Kennedy's assassination. There are few days in American history so immortalized in public memory as November 22, 1963, the date of President John F. Kennedy's assassination. Adding to the wealth of information about this tragic day is We Were There, a truly unique collection of firsthand accounts from the doctors and staff on scene at the hospital where JFK was immediately taken after he was shot. With the help of his former fellow staff members at Parkland Memorial Hospital, Dr. Allen Childs recreates the horrific day, from the president's arrival in Dallas to the public announcement of his death. Childs presents a multifaceted and sentimental reflection on the day and its aftermath. In addition to detailing the sequence of events that transpired around JFK's death, We Were There offers memories of the First Lady, insights on conspiracy theories revolving around the president's assassination, and recollections of the death of Lee Harvey Oswald, who succumbed two days later in the same hospital where his own victim was pronounced dead. A compelling, emotional read, We Were There pays tribute to a critical event in American modern history - and to a man whose death was mourned like no other.

    What did you love best about We Were There?

    Interesting first hand account of the ER experience during the Kennedy assassination. A view from a non=political perspective.
