During the height of World War II, officials assigned Major George Racey Jordan to expedite Lend-Lease shipments to the Soviet Union. Jordan oversaw the movement of materials, documents, and personnel between the United States and the Soviet Union.
However, what he observed during his tenure alarmed him. So he began keeping a diary to record his experiences, which later became the basis for the book "From Major Jordan's Diaries." In this book, Jordan documents the astonishing extent to which the United States provided the Soviet Union with atomic secrets, military secrets, industrial secrets, and much more. Even more shocking is that this was a matter of policy and high priority under President Franklin Delano Roosevelt's administration.
The Lend-Lease Program aimed to provide military aid to the United Kingdom, China, and the Soviet Union during World War II. Major Jordan oversaw the shipments of aid to the Soviet Union, which included vast amounts of materials, equipment, vehicles, aircraft, ships, and foodstuffs.
However, what Major Jordan discovered during his tenure was beyond his wildest imagination. In his diary, Jordan documented that the United States provided the Soviet Union with the atomic bomb, including uranium and other classified scientific documents. The United States even provided the blueprint of the Manhattan Project, which was used to build the atomic bomb. This was done despite the Soviet Union not being an ally of the United States during the development of the atomic bomb.
In addition to the atomic secrets, the United States provided military secrets, equipment, vehicles, aircraft, ships, weaponry, and training to the Soviet Union. Industrial secrets, processes, methods, and blueprints of U.S. industrial plants were also provided. Scientific secrets, papers, and patents were shared as well. The United States even provided the Soviet Union with U.S. treasury plates for printing paper currency.
Jordan's diary entries reveal that vast amounts of materials, equipment, vehicles, aircraft, ships, and foodstuffs were provided to the Soviet Union. Furthermore, the United States provided vast amounts of consumer goods, contrary to the Lend-Lease law. The United States also provided equipment and supplies to be used after World War II to build the Soviet Union's industries, contrary to the Lend-Lease law.
What is even more shocking is that all of this was a matter of policy and high priority under President Franklin Delano Roosevelt's administration. Harry Hopkins, a close advisor to Roosevelt, ran the Lend-Lease program. The transfer of such sensitive information and materials was not done by accident or espionage. It was a deliberate decision made at the highest levels of the United States government.
Jordan's diary also reveals that U.S. military personnel were assigned to the United Nations three years before its official formation. This suggests that the United States was involved in the planning of the United Nations long before its creation.
In addition, Soviet agents were allowed to freely move in and out of the United States without visas. This astonishing revelation suggests that the United States government was willing to overlook the presence of Soviet agents on American soil.
"From Major Jordan's Diaries" is a shocking exposé of the United States policy towards the Soviet Union during World War II. Major George Racey Jordan's diary entries document the extent to which the United States provided the Soviet Union with sensitive information, materials, and resources, including the atomic bomb, military secrets, industrial secrets, and much more. This book is a must-read for anyone interested in the history of the United States and its relationships with other nations and those interested in World War II. It is a stark reminder of the dangers of unchecked government power and the importance of holding those in positions of authority accountable for their actions.
