De-classified Documents Reference System

DDRS is a collection of previously classified government documents relating to domestic and foreign policy.  It fills an important gap in post-World War II domestic and foreign policy studies and provides unique opportunities for undergraduate and graduate comprehensive research in a rich primary source. In addition, Declassified Documents Reference System provides a significant resource for researchers in almost every discipline, including journalism, public policy studies, international law and security, and more.

To complement the core content, the Churchill Archive will offer an expanding range of additional materials, including pedagogical resources and secondary materials, plus editorially-selected links to other resources, video and audio content, and biographical and bibliographic databases.
