In 1949, the name James Forrestal was as familiar to Americans as that of the president. He had risen from obscurity to become head a successful Wall Street brokerage, an advisor to President Roosevelt, Secretary of the Navy, then the country’s first Secretary of Defense. So how and why was it that his name and memory were relegated to the dustbin of history?
If we’re to believe the official account, early on the morning of May 22, 1949, Secretary Forrestal threw himself to his death from the 16th floor of the Bethesda (Maryland) Naval Hospital where he was being held under a round-the-clock Marine guard following a profound nervous breakdown. But the explanation does not hold up under scrutiny. In this richly illustrated, fast-paced presentation, investigative writer Peter Robbins draws on his years of independent research into the life of this American patriot to make the case for murder, and one whose motives were inexorably tied to the early days of the UFO cover-up. A riveting journey through one of Post War History’s darkest, most unforgettable chapters.
