B143 - Regicide: The Official Assassination of John F. Kennedy / By Gregory Douglas

From the dust jacket:  “As is well known, the rise of Fidel Castro as communist dictator of Cuba led to a series of very dangerous confrontations with the U.S., for instance, the Bay of Pigs invasion and the subsequent Cuban Missile Crisis, to name only the best known events.  It is less well-known that both the U.S. Joints Chiefs of Staff and the CIA were plotting to drag the U.S. into open hostilities with Cuba by staging Cuban “aggressions” and to intentionally cause “collateral damage” outside and inside the U.S.  Hardcover, pp 223
