About This Item

New York: The MacMillan Company, 1964. In 1949 James Forrestal, America's first Secretary of Defence, plunged to his death from the 16th floor of the Bethesda Naval Hospital where he was undergoing psychiatric treatment. Two months earlier President Trueman had awarded him the Distinguished Service Medal. This book is not only an absorbing, objective portrait of the highest American government official ever to have committed suicide but also a study of the Trueman administration. Many provocative questions are raised... Blue boards, photo endpapers, no ownership markings. Bottom corner tip wear is evident. Illustrated photo dust jacket design by H.Lawrence Hoffman. The author..Associate Professor of Political Science at Stanford University. A sound copy.. Third Printing. Hard Cover. Very Good/Good.
