Memorandum Prepared in the Department of State
[ Washington , undated.]
Policy on Atomic Warfare
The question raised by Secretary Royall,1 in Tab B, has never officially come before the Department. Recently questions involving use of atomic energy in a possible war with Russia, and particularly the problem of targets, has been discussed informally with air force planners by Messrs. Kennan, Bohlen and Thompson.2
Mr. Gullion has prepared a memorandum on this subject which contains his own personal views (Tab A).
