If I could I would give this book 10 stars. This book is by far the most interesting and historical concerning the people on both sides of the spectrum of the invasion. Contains not only personal information of those involved but all of the mentioned documents are contained at the end of the book, many of which have never been seen before. Also, contains information on the actual knowledge of what Kennedy knew concering the invasion.
