Summary "In The Oswalds, Paul Gregory--labeled by Robert Oswald as the 'only' friend of Lee Harvey Oswald and his soviet wife Marina--breaks nearly sixty years of silence to reveal how the soul of a killer took shape. Two hours after the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, television cameras captured police escorting a suspect into Dallas police headquarters. Meanwhile in the student center at the University of Oklahoma, Gregory scanned the figure in a white, V-neck tee shirt and saw a battered yet recognizable face. Shocked, he said, 'I know that man.' In fact, he knew Lee and Marina better than almost anyone in America. Identified by the FBI as a 'known associate of LHO,' Gregory faced interrogations by the Secret Service and would later testify before the Warren Commission. Now, he offers readers the intimate details of his time spent within the inner world of Lee and Marina's young marriage in their rundown duplex in Fort Worth, Texas. His recollections include memories both casual and deadly serious, such as the dinner at his parents' house introducing Marina to the 'Dallas Russians,' a front-yard incident of spousal abuse, and Lee's attempt to assassinate a retired general. Gregory also recalls his father's role as Marina's translator and confidante in the first four days following the assassination, holed up at the Six Flags Inn with Marina, Lee's mother, and the Secret Service. As a scholar and skilled researcher, Gregory debunks the vast array of conspiracy theories with a candid assessment of the JFK assassination, demonstrating that Lee Harvey Oswald did it and did it alone--that the Oswald he once called a friend had the motive, the intelligence, and the means to be an assassin."
