This series is 7.5 linear feet. This series deals with articles both by and about Admiral Zumwalt. Some articles express Chief of Naval Operations Admiral Zumwalt's repeated warnings that the Soviet Navy had surpassed the United State Navy in combatant capabilities. Further, several articles address Admiral Zumwalt's statements concerning the Australian, New Zealand, and United States Treaty (ANZUS). Articles after Admiral Zumwalt's retirement and his unsuccessful bid for the Senate seat from Virginia, demonstrate his criticism of trends he saw in Defense procurement, especially the tendency toward increasingly large and sophisticated, and more expensive, weapons platforms. There are also articles about his family, especially Mouza's efforts during the campaign. Articles in this series also refer to Lt. Col. Zumwalt (Admiral Zumwalt's father) including a couple of letters from the European Theater in 1945.
