Complete and unexpurgated diaries from the Seeley G Mudd Manuscript Library, Princeton University

"The full version of the Forrestal Diaries is a wonderful source - extraordinarily rich, and far more revealing than the edited version that was published in 1951."
Professor Marc Trachtenberg, Department of Political Science, UCLA.

  • This is the first time that the complete, unexpurgated diaries of James V Forrestal have been published.
  • At five times the length of the printed edition, there is much more in this original typescript record.
  • Forrestal had privileged access to many vital policy meetings and kept a careful record of what was said.
  • This is a crucial source for anyone studying America and World War II.
  • There is much on the Pacific War, Atomic Tests, and the decision to drop two nuclear bombs on Japan.
  • There is also a great deal on post-war nuclear policy, the occupation of Japan, and Marshall Aid to Europe.
