12:30 p.m., Central Standard Time, November 22nd, 1963: It has been called recent history's most indelible moment; the moment when President John Fitzgerald Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas. Almost from that instant, LIFE magazine was on the story, gathering images of that day, its prelude and its aftermath. In this 50th anniversary commemorative volume, however, they go beyond anything that they or anyone else has done before. This painstakingly produced coffee-table hardcover contains a complete reprint of LIFE's historic 1963 issue on the tragic events; but also includes numerous new features, including all 486 frames of the Zapruder film; background on the JFK presidency; archival photographs of the Oswald family on the night of the killing; and personal stories about first hearing the news by leaders, media commentators, and celebrities.
