Overview

Under the code name MAGIC, the United States produced summaries and transcripts of intercepted and deciphered messages between the Japanese Foreign Office and its key personnel and allies throughout the world from 1938 to 1945. From Tokyo, Berlin, Moscow, Rome, Hanoi, Nanking, Madrid, and elsewhere, the diplomatic messages-given the highest possible security rating by the Japanese-were read daily by American officials. Now these messages can be read by everyone. Never before has such an amount of high-level documentation on the Axis war effort been published: meetings of the Japanese ambassador to Berlin with Hitler, Himmler, and Ribbentrop; reports of the Japanese ambassador to Moscow; accounts of battlefield developments from the Japanese Central Army Headquarters; and reports of conversations of Prime Minister Tojo with other leaders.
