The closest friend of Lee Harvey Oswald and his Soviet wife Marina upon the couple’s arrival in Texas breaks a sixty-year silence with a riveting story of his time with JFK’s assassin and his candid assessment of the murder that marked a turning point in our country’s history.
Merely two hours after the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, television cameras captured police escorting a suspect into Dallas police headquarters. Meanwhile at the University of Oklahoma, watching the coverage in the student center, Paul Gregory scanned the figure in dark trousers and a white, V-neck tee shirt and saw the bruised and battered face of Lee Harvey Oswald. Shocked, Gregory said, “I know that man.” In fact, he knew Oswald and his wife Marina better than almost anyone in America.
After sixty years, Paul Gregory finally tells everything he knows about the Oswalds and how he watched the soul of a killer take shape.
Identified by the FBI as a “known associate of LHO,” Gregory soon faced interrogations by the Secret Service. Later he would testify before the Warren Commission. Here, in The Oswalds, he offers the intimate details of his time spent with Lee and wife Marina in their run-down duplex on Mercedes Street in Fort Worth, Texas, and his admission into the inner world of a young marriage before candidly assessing the murder that marked a turning point in our country’s history. His riveting recollection includes 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 a further rift in the marriage when he exposed to Marina that Oswald was not the dashing, radical intellectual whose Historic Diary would be a publishing sensation. And Gregory also gives a fascinating account of his father’s role as an eyewitness to history, serving as Marina’s translator and confidante in the first four days after the assassination.
As a scholar and skilled researcher, Gregory debunks the vast array of assassination conspiracy theories by 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 commit one of the most shocking crimes in American history.

Interesting account of this era of US history.
It's always good to hear a first person telling of interaction that went on with the Oswalds. I like that the author was careful to be accurate, had a youthful perspective and the experienced view after so many years has passed. I decided to read this book after watching the documentary on Ruth Paine.

Excellent first-hand account of The Oswalds
Living in the DFW area, I have a fascination with the comings and the goings of the Lee and Marina Oswald before, during and after the tragic events of November 1963. Mr. Gregory's account is detailed, credible and definitely worthy of a listen. He gets 99.99% of the details right (I think a few times he suggests Ruth Paine's home was in Arlington, not Irving). The overwhelming accuracy of the locations, dates and people he shares makes this book believable and brings the Oswalds day-to-day life into view. This IS NOT a conspiracy book in any sense. The author ends by sharing his opinion on the assassination which is one that is most logical to me. I STRONGLY recommend The Oswalds by Paul Gregory. Narration was great. I didn't want it to end!
