As the principal group of military advisers to the President of the United States, the Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS) is the most important body of military leaders in the world. While papers and reports of the JCS were previously among the most closely guarded secrets of the government, the JCS has opened millions of pages of those documents to researchers. Operational reports, research and development studies, intelligence estimates, contingency combat plans, and policy studies of friends and foes: these are just a few of the areas covered in Records of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. Rich in facts and details that were once out of reach for scholars, these documents give a firsthand account of the innermost workings of the top level military and diplomatic planning in the government. Part 2 provides JCS papers on the cold war and the Korean War period. Hunders of documents are reporduced on each of the major topics. Key developments on which the Joint Chiefs concentrated include the Chinese Civil War, the threat of Soviet expansion, the Arab-Isreli conflict, amd the beginning of the nuclear arms race.
