Almost History is a fascinating collection of speeches, memos, and other archival material that reveals how our government would have handled historic moments that never came to be: JFK's prepared address justifying his bombing of Cuba during the 1962 missile crisisAbraham Lincoln's plans for post-Civil War ReconstructionThe authorization for the use of American nuclear weapons in the Vietnam WarThe FBI's memo on deporting John Lennon... ...and much more. The book is not based on supposition; the text is illustrated with actual documents which offer a focus and insight into alternative history that is truly unique. These events were close to reality, but twists.
