Long was mortally wounded by a hail of bullets, and a Dr. Carl A. Weiss died at the scene from a hail of bullets from Long's body guards. A gun was not found on the body of Weiss who died immediately after striking Long in the face. Interesting rehashing of the events that occurred in 1936. Long was a fascinating political figure during that period of time - adored by the general populace who believed him when he promised better times and despised by the better educated professionals who found him a disgusting, corrupt buffoon.

Inhaltsangabe: Murder or political intrigue? Robert Penn Warren authored the Pulitzer Prize novel, "All the King's Men". This was patterned on the life of Huey P. Long, a vindictive and oppressive ruler of Louisiana in the 1930's. History records that Huey Long was assassinated; not so, writes Dr. Donald A. Pavy in his book, "Accident and Deception: The Huey Long Shooting". In his book Dr. Pavy challenges you to ask history what really happened, to let the readers determine the truth.
