"A powerful piece of historical investigative reporting, accessible both to those familiar with the Kennedy assassination and those less involved with the conspiracy theory." (Booklist)

Benefit from National Archives
Gus Russo and Stepehen Molten have joined forces here to bring listeners up to date on the latest material related to the Kennedy assassination and related questions. They look at the death of the President from the perspective of the Castro borthers, the Kennedy brothers, and of course Lee Harvey Oswald. They seem to have exhaustively incorporated materials most recently released from the National Archives related to that era. Molton is a novelist and Russo has written other books such as "Supermob" and "The Outfit". Their writing and research talents shine throughout the book. Those of us who are old enough to have lived through those dark days will find plenty to scare the devil out of us here related to the Bay of Pigs, the Russian Missle Crisis, and other issues. The writing is very good and the reading of Paul Boehmer is excellent. This is a contribution to the history of that time which is well worth the listener's time.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
So glad I discovered this book. I learned so much and found that a great deal of research was done by the writer. Many of my questions have been answered.
What other book might you compare Brothers in Arms to and why?
For truth and the ugliness of reality I am remineded of To Hell and Back.
Which character – as performed by Paul Boehmer – was your favorite?
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
It gave me hope that it is possible some questions can be resolved at least in one's own mind.
Any additional comments?
