Ultimate Sacrifice reveals, for the first time, John and Robert Kennedy's plan for a coup in Cuba on December 1, 1963 -- a plan that involved a U.S. military invasion. Unique, distinctly different, and far more advanced than any previously disclosed operation, this plan is corroborated by many declassified military and CIA documents that have never been quoted in any book before. It provides the missing piece of the puzzle regarding JFK's murder, and explains why Bobby Kennedy told close associates that the Mafia was behind his brother's assassination. The Mafia had managed to infiltrate the Kennedys' intended coup. Ultimate Sacrifice describes and documents an attempt they made to kill JFK in a motorcade several days prior to Dallas. This attempt had more than a dozen parallels to Dallas. Building on the work of the seven governmental committees that investigated aspects of JFK's assassination, the four million documents that were declassified in the 1990s, and exclusive interviews with many Kennedy insiders, the authors are able to tell the full story of these incidents. Ultimate Sacrifice Makes News with Kennedy's Cuba Coup Plan New History Reveals Previously Unknown CIA Code Name -- As Well As Linked Assassination Attempt

display_description A landmark in historical research, tying the Mafia and Cuba to the assassination of JFK-updated to reveal the role of Cuban Commander Juan Almeida. Recent revelations by the U. S. government point to Cuba's former number three official-Commander Juan Almeida-as secretly working with President John F. Kennedy in November 1963 to overthrow Fidel Castro. This updated edition of Ultimate Sacrifice tells the full story for the first time-complete with new photos and documents. The authors obtained the story from almost two dozen associates of John and Robert Kennedy, starting in 1990 with JFK's Secretary of State Dean Rusk. Their accounts are supported by thousands of newly released files at the National Archives. A "palace coup," set for December 1, 1963, was to be backed up by U. S. forces "invited" in by Commander Almeida, then Chief of the Cuban Army. However, three Mafia bosses being targeted by Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy used several CIA assets to infiltrate the secret plot and murder JFK. The new edition explains why Almeida was not a double agent, why Fidel suspected Almeida's ally Che Guevara, and what Fidel did in 1990 when he finally found out about Almeida's work for JFK.
