The Pentagon Papers (Complete)

The Pentagon Papers, leaked by Daniel Ellsberg to the New York Times and Washington Post, were Robert MacNamara's 1967 effort to summarize the progress of the war.  While the volumes made public by Alaska Senator Mike Gravel in 1971 after the Nixon Administration attempted to stifle their publication are located at E183.8.V5 P42 in the General Collection, they are incomplete.  The complete and unredacted papers were finally released by NARA in 2011 and can be found here:
