Admiral Ambassador to Russia

Excerpt

This is Admiral William H. Standley's behind-the-scenes story of a crucial period in our wartime alliance with Soviet Russia and the critical maneuvers and problems facing the United States of America during his mission to Moscow from April 1942 to October 1943. The views and opinions expressed are those of Admiral Standley as a private citizen. Admiral Ageton collaborated with Admiral Standley for four years in preparing and expanding the narrative into its present form from the notes and diaries which Admiral Standley recorded at the time of the history-making events which his experiences encompassed.

The opinions and attitudes expressed certainly are not to be construed as official or as reflecting the views of the Department of State, the Department of Defense, the Department of the Navy, or the Naval Service. The accounts given are factual and have been as closely related to contemporaneous events of history as the two authors could contrive.
