Two Days In June is the story of the high noon of the presidency of John Fitzgerald Kennedy. It chronicles, hour-by-hour, two days in the late spring of 1963 in which JFK pivots, courageously and historically, on the two biggest issues of his generation: nuclear arms and civil rights. Defying his advisors, Kennedy's initiatives will lead to the first nuclear arms treaty of the Cold War and the most comprehensive civil rights act in American history. This is a fly-on-the-wall story of 48 hours in the life of one of the most celebrated Americans of the 20th century.

************************** 30 STARRED Review *******************************
If one reads this book, and either reads the book by James Blight, or views the DVD based upon the book, Virtual JFK, and reads the amazing and accurate article by James DiEugenio below, then the reader will see how all those demonic revisionists and purveyors of disinformation have been refuted!

[Please note JFK's handling of the Indonesia situation - - absolutely opposite Eisenhower, whose CIA actions failed and cost the lives of thousands of Indonesians, or LBJ's CIA-directed coup, which succeeded, but cost the lives of from one-half to one million Indonesians, and the first to be killed were the labor organizers at the Rockefeller oil companies of StanVac and Caltex, of course!]

Excellent well-written book on a subject matter (JFK's presidency) addressed many times over. Provided many insights into the volatile decade of the sixties.
