Summary
Utilizes previously unpublished letters, writings from Whitman's journal, and photographs to provide a riveting exploration of sniper Charles Joseph Whitman's 1966 massacre of sixteen people at the University of Texas, one of the largest simultaneous mass murders in American history. Reprint. LJ.
Amazon.com description: Product Description: The bodies kept falling, the blood was real, and the man on the deck, a consummate actor for a number of years, was no longer acting.

On August 1, 1966, Charles Joseph Whitman ascended the University of Texas Tower and committed what was then the largest simultaneous mass murder in American history. He gunned down forty-five people inside and around the Tower before he was killed by two Austin police officers. During the previous evening he had killed his wife and mother, bringing the total to sixteen people dead and at least thirty-one wounded. The murders spawned debates over issues which still plague America today: domestic violence, child abuse, drug abuse, military indoctrination, gun control, the insanity defense, and the delicate balance between civil liberties and public safety.
