The CIA Makes Science Fiction Unexciting #6: The Life of Lee Harvey Oswald

Lee Harvey Oswald, Abner Smith

A full and panoramic look at Lee Harvey Oswald’s short, conflicted, adventure-filled life is presented in this collection that contains exclusive information and newly declassified documents. It puts into perspective a richly detailed version of the Oswald story, from his birth in 1939 to his historic televised assassination. This is Lee Harvey Oswald the husband, the son, the brother—a man whose personality profile differs wildly from the “Lee as lone-wingnut” theory crafted by the Warren Commission. Much of this information, seen here for the first time in print, humanizes the controversial and polarizing man. Packed with interview text featuring figures as close to Oswald as his wife and mother, this book shows Lee as a confused Marxist, an employee, a soldier, a lover, a people person, a trouble-starter, a world traveler, and a show-off. While the events are from the past, the topics discussed are still heavily relevant: the tactics used by the government in this story are still being employed to this day.
