On February 24, 2014, the Naval War College Library in Newport, R.I. publicly unveiled online the 4,000-page "Gray Book" collection of Fleet Admiral Chester Nimitz communications that started in the wake of the Pearl Harbor attack and ran right up until the closing days of the war.

The Command Summary of Fleet Admiral Chester Nimitz was compiled by the War Plans Section of the Pacific Command Headquarters in Hawaii during World War II and contains daily estimates of the situation, command decisions, and running summaries of communications from December 7, 1941, to August 31, 1945.

Naval War College Historian Douglas Smith states that it is "the most authoritative source on the Pacific War available anywhere."

The Gray Book was declassified in 1972.

The Grey Book is a fascinating day-by-day analysis of the Pacific campaign from Admiral Chester Nimitz's staff.
