In this alternate history, George Washington becomes Lord President George I of the United States in 1789, and this action changes the course of world development: the monarchies of Europe and the New World are never displaced, but evolve into parliamentary democracies. And so, in this strange new universe, when Lord President John IV (Kennedy) travels to Dallas in 1963, the assassin's bullet misses, killing the Lord Governor of Texas instead, and Kennedy survives to serve two full terms in office!
The true stories behind some of the most shocking assassinations in recent history.
We live in a new age of political assassination; within our lifetimes all the senior members of the UN Security Council have used it as an extension of political policy in all corners of the globe. In every case, the orders came from the very top. Today, while leading governments use covert ops, drones and lazer guided missiles, the terrorist methods of car bombs and suicide bombers make the game even more dangerous.
In his compelling history of hit men, assassinations and the men who command them, Richard Bellfield recalls the major hits in history from Julius Caesar to twenty of the most shocking assassinations in recent history. He also reveals: how the assassination of President Sadat of Egypt launched Al Qaeda. How President Kennedy ordered the death of President Diem of Vietnam. And with excerpts from CIA and Al Qaeda manuals he shows how they have changed the course of history. He also uncovers the hidden world of killers and cover ups.
