As it was scheduled as their December issue, it had been planned as a Christmas issue. The assassination changed those plans. An editorial was written about the Kennedy presidency, and the new President Lyndon Johnson, and almost as an afterthought, the magazine added a glued-on sticker reading "In Memory of John F. Kennedy" (sticker is present on this copy). Ironically, the original issue layout included an introduction, written by Jacqueline Kennedy, to a feature on Christmas at the White House, which was left in the issue.

Lost Destiny  Joe Kennedy Jr. and the Doomed WWII Mission to Save London, Axelrod, Alan
6 Axelrod, Alan Lost Destiny Joe Kennedy Jr. and the Doomed WWII Mission to Save London
New York Palgrave Macmillan 2015 1137279044 / 9781137279040 First Edition; First Printing Hardcover Very Good+ in Near Fine dust jacket 
Slight shelf wear to boards with remainder dot on bottom page edges. ; A bright, solid book dustjacket in Mylar, unclipped.; B&W Illustrations; 9.49 X 6.34 X 0.98 inches; 290 pages; On August 12, 1944, Lieutenant Joseph P. Kennedy, Jr., heir to one of America's most glamorous fortunes, son of the disgraced former ambassador to Great Britain, and big brother to freshly minted PT-109 hero JFK, hoisted himself up into a highly modified B-24 Liberator bomber. The munitions he was carrying that day were fifty percent more powerful than TNT.Kennedy's mission was part of Operation Aphrodite/Project Anvil, a desperate American effort to rescue London from a rain of German V-1 and V-2 missiles. The decision to use these bold but crude precursors to modern-day drones against German V-weapon launch sites came from Air Corps high command. Lieutenant General Jimmy Doolittle, daring leader of the spectacular 1942 Tokyo Raid, and others concocted a plan to install radio control equipment in "war-weary" bombers, pack them with a dozen tons of high explosives, and fly them by remote control directly into the concrete German launch sites, targets too hard to be destroyed by conventional bombs. The catch was that live pilots were needed to get these flying bombs off the ground and headed toward their targets. Joe Jr. was the first naval aviator to fly such a mission. And - in the biggest manmade explosion before Hiroshima - it killed him.Alan Axelrod's Lost Destiny is a rare exploration of the origin of today's controversial military drones as well as a searing and unforgettable story of heroism, WWII, and the Kennedy dynasty that might have been.

The Cuban Missile Crisis, 1962  A National Security Archive Documents Reader, Chang, Laurence &  Peter Kornbluh
9 Chang, Laurence & Peter Kornbluh The Cuban Missile Crisis, 1962 A National Security Archive Documents Reader
New York New Press 1992 1565840194 / 9781565840195 First Edition Hardcover Very Good+ in Very Good dust jacket 
Light wear to head and tail of spine ; A bright, solid book, dustjacket in Mylar, unclipped. Stated first edition ; National Security Archive Documents Readers; Small 4to 9" - 11" tall; 446 pages; This book was published to mark the 30th anniversary of the event, and provides an extensive overview of the actions of the Kennedy administration, the Joint Chiefs and the CIA during those events although the text is still somewhat redacted. The presence of Russian missles with nuclear warheads in Cuba, a mere 90 miles from US soil, was intolerable to President Kennedy. In one of his most memorable addresses to the American people, he advised on the discovery of the missle bases (then still under construction) , and the steps that the United States was taking to address the situation. It has been noted by many that in describing the actions that would be taken, given that the USSR did not remove their missiles, he tactfully left it until his third point to state, "It shall be the policy of this nation to regard any nuclear missile launched from Cuba against any nation in the Western Hemisphere as an attack on the United States, requiring a full retaliatory response upon the Soviet Union." Although some of his administration, and in particular the Joint Chiefs of Staff pushed hard for an immediate bombing of the bases and/or an invasion of Cuba, JFK ultimately decided on a blockade and continued communication with the Soviets, most likely side-stepping what would have most likely become a nuclear conflict between the two superpowers.

An Unfinished Life  John F. Kennedy, 1917-1963, Dallek, Robert
12 Dallek, Robert An Unfinished Life John F. Kennedy, 1917-1963
Boston Little, Brown and Company 2003 0316172383 / 9780316172387 First Edition; First Printing Hardcover Near Fine in Near Fine dust jacket 
Only slight wear ; A bright, solid book, dustjacket in Mylar, unclipped. ; B&W Plates; 9.60 X 6.50 X 1.80 inches; 838 pages; "In this riveting tour de force, Boston University history professor Dallek delivers what will most assuredly become the benchmark JFK biography for this generation. A master of the art of narrative history, Dallek is also the first biographer since Doris Kearns Goodwin to be granted unrestricted access to key Kennedy family papers (most importantly, the Joseph and Rose Kennedy Papers) in the JFK Library. This is a substantial and significant trove to which Dallek brings a refreshingly critical eye. He has also mined many nuggets of key information from the papers of JFK's colleagues, doctors and friends. Thus Dallek has significant new ground to break on a range of fronts including but not limited to Kennedy's health, politics, personal recklessness and love affairs. Dallek's revelations about JFK's health, based on previously unavailable medical files maintained by Kennedy's personal physician, have already received significant publicity from the Atlantic excerpt in December 2002. But here Dallek expands on that information and reveals (for the first time) the full extent of the medical coverup orchestrated by the Kennedy family: a coverup that involved the destruction of key medical records even after JFK was in his grave. On the political front, Dallek uses new inside information from a Kennedy associate to reveal the detailed mechanics (and enormous scope) of the use of Kennedy money to purchase the West Virginia primary in 1960. At the same time, Dallek has new evidence on both Jack's philandering and his recklessness. Example: During the same 1960 campaign on which his father spent millions, JFK risked it all by inviting an underage cheerleader to his hotel room. As is appropriate, close to two-thirds of this biography covers Kennedy's truncated presidency. In one of the book's most important sections, Dallek marshals new evidence that JFK did not view with favor the expansion of the war in Vietnam, and that he most likely would not have sanctioned such an expansion. Throughout the book, Dallek stops short of worshipping his subject. He is a Kennedy admirer, but he never allows this admiration to cloud either his focus or his truth telling." Publishers Weekly

19 Ford, Gerald R. & John R. Stiles Portrait of the Assassin
New York Simon & Schuster 1965 First Edition; Second Printing Hardcover Very Good+ in Very Good dust jacket 
Light shelfwear to DJ and board edges. Previous owner's name on front free endpaper. ; A tight, solid book, dustjacket in Mylar, unclipped.; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 508 pages; The only book written by one of the actual commissioners who sat on the Warren Commission investigating the assassination of President John F. Kennedy (other later books were written by Commission staff lawyers), congressman Ford actually broke the law at the time the book was published as he had used confidential information of the Commission in the book. During his time on the Commission, he was also acting as an informant to the FBI on the Commission's daily activities and findings. Ford was a believer in a single assassin and the "single bullet theory" from the beginning, going so far as to 'correct' a text passage in the report prior to publication, changing the wording describing Kennedy's "back wound" to read "neck wound". He was the Commissioner who attended the most testimony hearings, only Earl Warren himself could claim more time at the hearings. Ford remained a staunch defender of the Commission findings for the rest of his life. A 'must read' for any serious student of the JFK assassination.

High Noon in the Cold War  Kennedy, Khrushchev, and the Cuban Missile Crisis, Frankel, Max
20 Frankel, Max High Noon in the Cold War Kennedy, Khrushchev, and the Cuban Missile Crisis
New York Presidio Press 2004 0345465059 / 9780345465054 1st; First Printing Hardcover Near Fine in Near Fine dust jacket 
Only slight wear; DJ is bright and crisp, enclosed in mylar covering, unclipped. ; B&W Illustrations; 9.40 X 6.30 X 1 inches; 206 pages; "Using his personal memories of covering the conflict, and gathering evidence from recent records and new scholarship and testimony, Max Frankel corrects widely held misconceptions about the game of “nuclear chicken” played by John Kennedy and Nikita Khrushchev in October 1962, when Soviet missiles were secretly planted in Cuba and aimed at the United States.High Noon in the Cold War portrays an embattled young American president, not jaunty and callow as widely believed, but increasingly calm and statesmanlike and a Russian ruler who was not only a “wily old peasant” but an insecure belligerent desperate to achieve credibility. Here, too, are forgotten heroes like John McCone, the conservative Republican CIA head whose intuition made him a crucial figure in White House debates. In detailing the disastrous miscalculations of the two superpowers (the U.S. thought the Soviets would never deploy missiles to Cuba; the Soviets thought the U.S. would have to acquiesce) and how Kennedy and Khrushchev beat back hotheads in their own councils, this fascinating book re-creates the whole story of the scariest encounter of the Cold War, as told by a master reporter."
