Contains a wealth of diplomatic cables originating from U.S. embassies overseas directed primarily to the U.S. Department of State from August 21-28, 1968. These communiques highlight global reactions and political response to the Soviet military intervention in Czechoslovakia. Of the few notable anomalies in this folder, a letter from the president of the American Communist Party to the U.S. President stands out along with an intriguing, lengthy, and articulate epistle from the head of the UAW (United Automobile Workers labor union) to the U.S. President as well, both addressing their grievances over the crisis in Czechoslovakia, albeit in decidedly opposing ways.
