General Wallace M. Greene Jr. was the 23d Commandant of the Marine Corps, serving from 1964 to 1967, a period in which American involvement in Vietnam increased dramatically. The Greene Papers: General Wallace M. Greene Jr. and the Escalation of the Vietnam War, January 1964-March 1965 contains more than 100 documents from the personal papers of General Greene and is the first edited volume of personal papers to be published by the Marine Corps History Division as a monograph. Produced by a member of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Greene's notes provide readers with a firsthand account from one of the main participants in the decision-making process that led to the commitment of a large-scale American expeditionary force in Southeast Asia. Because of President Lyndon B. Johnson's reticence to regularly consult the Joint Chiefs on military matters, however, the notes also give readers a second point of view: that of a frustrated advisor kept on the outside and forced to look in, observe, and reflect on major military decisions often made without his input or support. Also apparent are the tensions between Greene and President Johnson's aggressive and domineering Secretary of Defense, Robert S. McNamara. This volume begins in January 1964 and ends just before the landing of the 9th Marine Expeditionary Brigade at Da Nang on 8 March 1965, a pivotal moment that marked the official transition from the United States' advisory mission to a more active combat mission. In doing so, it traces Greene's growing frustration with McNamara's and Johnson's equivocation and uncertainty about Southeast Asia. Along with a series of commemorative pamphlets, this book is part of the Marine Corps History Division's effort to mark the fiftieth anniversary of the Vietnam War.

General Wallace M. Greene was only the fourth Commandant of the Marine Corps to serve as a member of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. Upon the start of his tenure in January 1964, he believed he had a twofold mission: to lead the Marine Corps as its senior officer and to serve as a counselor to the president of the United States as a Service chief. Greene's efforts to complete the latter part of his mission were repeatedly stymied by a president, Lyndon B. Johnson, who was uneasy around the military and a secretary of defense, Robert S. McNamara, who often believed that the Joint Chiefs lacked the political and diplomatic skills needed for understanding the world of the Cold War. Greene nevertheless made every effort he could to see that his opinions on military matters reached President Johnson. This was particularly so during the run-up to the United States' intervention in the Vietnam War. As the Johnson administration debated the various courses of action available to the United States in Southeast Asia, Greene took down copious notes from every meeting he attended, saved cables and memoranda, and worked to lay a documentary foundation for future historical works on the Marine Corps and the Vietnam War. Most of these documents remained classified until 2011, when the Marine Corps History Division and the Marine Corps Archives worked to declassify them and make them available for research. This volume presents, in edited form, the bulk of that material from January 1964 until just before the landing of Marine units in South Vietnam in March 1965. This collection is a point of departure for the Marine Corps History Division. In the past, the History Division has published primary sources and other historical documents as occasional papers; the present work contains the first edited volume of personal papers to be printed by the division as a monograph. The volume includes more than 100 documents from the personal papers of General Wallace M. Greene, Commandant of the Marine Corps from 1964-67. As Commandant during the critical early years of direct U.S. involvement in the Vietnam War, Greene played an important role in the decision-making process as the United States escalated its role in the conflict. He was also afforded a remarkable vantage point and was an eyewitness to some of the most important decisions made by President Lyndon B. Johnson during this period. These papers have been collected and edited for both research purposes and to chronicle the events of this period of escalation; they begin right before the Khanh coup of January 1964 and end just prior to the landing of Marines at Da Nang in March 1965. The majority of the documents come from notes, memoranda, letters, and cables collected by Greene under the title "Notes on the Situation in South Vietnam." They also include a substantial oral history recorded by General Greene for the Historical Division (as History Division was then known) between 1971 and 1972. These papers comprised about 15 archival boxes and were kept classified until 2011.

This new volume of The Papers of General Nathanael Greene continues the best and most-detailed study of the Revolutionary War in the South. More than 800 letters and orders chart the progress of Greene's army in South Carolina, from the battle of Eutaw Springs--the bloodiest battle of the Revolution--to the British pullback to Charleston. In July 1781, the British controlled large parts of South Carolina and Georgia, had a post in North Carolina, and maintained an army in Virginia. By early December, they held only the areas around Charleston and Savannah. The ability of Greene's beleaguered army to force this British retreat is the focus of this volume, which also documents Greene's attempts to rebuild the lower south's political and social fabric. In addition, this volume provides information on the siege of Yorktown, for although Greene was not directly involved, he received numerous reports from those on the scene in Virginia.

These volumes, published in conjunction with the Rhode Island Historical Society, represent the result of an exhaustive search for documents relating to the life and career of Revolutionary War general Nathanael Greene. The papers--letters and documents received by Greene as well as those sent by him--are carefully edited and fully annotated. The editors reproduce many items in full but abstract papers that are of lesser significance. Greene, who served as quartermaster general of the army and later as commander of the forces fighting in the southern theater, is generally considered the ablest of Washington's generals. His papers are a vital source of information on the war itself as well as on the man.

Although Robert Morris (1734-1806), "the Financier of the American Revolution," was a signer of the Declaration of Independence, the Articles of Confederation, and the Constitution, a powerful committee chairman in the Continental Congress, an important figure in Pennsylvania politics, and perhaps the most prominent businessman of his day, he is today least known of the great national leaders of the Revolutionary era.This oversight is being rectified by this definitive publication project that transcribes and carefully annotates the Office of Finance diary, correspondence, and other official papers written by Morris during his administration as superintendent of finance from 1781 to 1784.
