Book Description Boston and Los Angeles: Western Islands, 1966. Hardcover. Condition: Near Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. Octavo. Cloth boards with gilt-stamped spine; ix, 193 pp.; dust jacket. Mystery surrounds not only the circumstances of Forrestal's death, but the allegedly pseudonymous author of this work as well. Simpson's book, allegedly written in the mid-1950s was "too controversial or too dangerous" to publish. The John Birch Society's publishing arm, Western Islands, finally published it in 1966. It's a fascinating, conspiratorial account of the life and death of James Forrestal (1892-1949), the first United State Secretary of Defense forced to resign by President Harry Truman. He committed suicide soon after being institutionalized, although Simpson and others on the Right believed he had been murdered - most likely by Communists, although Jews/Zionists couldn't be discounted. Scarce in commerce. An about Near Fine copy with 1" of top edge cloth worn and small penned date to ffep; in a Very Good+, unclipped dust jacket, which has some light edgewear and creasing.
