De Silva, Peer. Sub Rosa: The CIA and the Uses of Intelligence. New York: New York Times Books, 1978.
Clark comment: This is De Silva's memoir of his intelligence career from 1945 to 1973. He was the CIA Chief of Station in Vietnam 1964-1965, where he was injured by a terrorist bomb. For Constantinides, much of what De Silva recounts about the Vietnam War "does not enlighten us about the intelligence effort and operations that provided the basis of his ... opinions." Pforzheimer finds that De Silva's presentation "suffers from the author's garrulous details of his personal life"; however, the book "brings out the flavor of an intelligence career."

According to Intelligence, 8 Nov. 1999, "[t]his is a good basic book on espionage." Coverage includes "all aspects of spy 'tradecraft'" and "[t]he text is clean and non-technical."

"Despite interdepartmental battles over personnel and access to information, the USSR Division [of OSS' Research and Analysis Branch (R&A)] and the State Department reached a productive, working relationship born of mutual need" during the wartime years. Nevertheless, "the State Department rejected the idea that the Research and Analysis Branch would be incorporated" in State's analysis and policymaking process. In so doing, "State had clearly lost the opportunity to take the lead in intelligence activities."

Paraphrased from the publisher's French: The story of Garbo (Juan Pujol) "is told accurately and completely" by the author, working from the declassified files in the British Public Record Office. Garbo allegedly ran "a network of more than twenty agents in England," all of whom were invented. The fictitious agents "played a vital role in Fortitude," the Allied deception plan for D-Day.

"Insight has unearthed the code names of Americans run by just one Stasi branch, the Leipzig-based Department XV. That department alone oversaw the spying of nine American moles in the mid- to late-1980s.... FBI sources say they have under active investigation a number of former East German and Russian spies. The Stasi files secured during the Insight/BBC investigation suggest there could be as many as 70. The FBI didn't discount this number."
