Description

History of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Volume VIII. An official publication of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, it describes the JCS activities during the period 1961-1964 (covering the entirety of the President John F. Kennedy administration and the beginning of the President Lyndon B. Johnson administration), except for activities related to Indochina which are covered in a separate series.

More than a mere historical text, this provides a fascinating inside look at the Joint Chiefs' participation and point-of-view in dealing with the following foreign crises from the U.S.S.R. to the Caribbean to Asia -- and working with the JFK and Johnson presidential administrations:

  • Soviet ICBM and MRBM missile gap, arms race with the Soviet Union, nuclear testing,  the strategic nuclear delivery vehicle (SNDV) freeze, and the creation of the Arms Control and Disarmament Agency (ACDA);
  • Berlin Wall construction;
  • Strife in Laos;
  • Failed Bay of Pigs invasion of Cuba and the Cuban Missile Crisis;
  • Expansion of the role of NATO;
  • Support for Israel, Saudi Regime and Shah of Iran;
  • Trouble in the Congo;
  • Sino-Indian Border War and more.

This resource is recommended for high-school libraries and 4-year academic libraries.
