For those who love alternate history stories, All the Way with JFK is a must read as it lays out a counter factual 1960’s, where John F. Kennedy returned from that trip to Texas in November of 1963 alive. Told through the eyes of individuals swept up in events where the history of Vietnam, Cuba, the struggle for Civil Rights, and the Cold War itself is far different than the one we know. Go into the Oval Office and the basement of the White House, the halls of Capital Hill and DC’s finest restaurants, Dallas strip clubs and luxury hotel suites, the backrooms of the Kremlin and a Cuban sugar plantation, the Governor’s mansion in Alabama and a barbeque joint in Louisiana, where men and women of both good and very bad will make history. And all with a cast of characters straight out of the six o’clock news: Bobby Kennedy, Lyndon Johnson, Barry Goldwater, Richard Nixon, Martin Luther King, George Wallace, Howard Hughes, Jimmy Hoffa, Chou En Lai, Nikita Khrushchev, Curtis LeMay, Robert McNamara, Carlos Marcello, Santos Trafficante, Jackie Kennedy, Leonid Brehznev, Hubert Humphrey, Richard Russell, The Beatles, James Eastland, Ronald Reagan, H.L. Hunt, and a cameo by Angie Dickinson, along with appearances by John Wayne, Stanley Kubrick and Sam Peckinpah. Towering over them all is John F. Kennedy himself, a master politician and very fallible man.
