Donahue, James C. Mobile Guerrilla Force: With the Special Forces in War Zone D. Annapolis, MD: Naval Institute Press, 1996.
From publisher: The Mobile Guerrilla Force was "an experimental Special Forces unit conceived to emulate the tactics of the Viet Cong guerrillas." In this book, Donahue relates the story of Operation Blackjack-31 "in January 1967 when 13 hand-picked Green Berets and a company of free Cambodian Guerrillas" slipped into the VC-controlled War Zone D. "Blackjack-31 was a historic departure from the conventional military thinking that dominated the war in Vietnam and clearly demonstrated that American-led indigenous forces could conduct guerrilla operations against the enemy."
Donaldson, Patrick J. "Infiltrating American Intelligence: Difficulties Inherent in the Congressional Oversight of Intelligence and the Joint Committee Model." American Intelligence Journal 28, no. 1 (2010): 13-28.
The author concludes that "[o]n balance, the benefits and detriments of the 9/11 Commission Report's proposed Joint Committee on Intelligence do not seem to warrant its adoption.... Instead, strengthening the authority of the GAO to audit intelligence programs will produce far greater opportunity to uncover abusive, illegal, and wasteful programs in the IC."
Donath, Jaap. "A European Community Intelligence Organization." Defense Intelligence Journal 2, no. 1 (Spring 1993): 15-33.
The European Community (EC) "needs a strategic intelligence organization comparable to the Central Intelligence Agency.... [T]he ECIO should not engage in covert actions.... Its most important task would be the analysis of overtly gathered information and preparing it for use by the policymakers.... It would ... be advisable to begin the ECIO on a small scale and only as a coordinating body for intelligence gathered by the national intelligence services. The model for such a system could be Interpol.... For the long-term prospect the ECIO should become an organization which recruits and trains its own personnel for all the information gathering."
Doneux, Jacques [Captain]. They Arrived by Moonlight. London: St Ermin's, 2001.
From publisher: "Doneux reveals his six perilous months operating a secret radio-set under the very noses of the Gestapo. He parachuted into enemy-occupied Belgium on a moonlit night in 1943 and lived with danger 24 hours a day. Here he records his adventures, including a 23-hour trek across the Pyrenees."

A Kirkus reviewer (via Amazon.com) says that the authors "offer a minutely detailed --and adulatory -- narrative of Operation Just Cause." This is "an unusually upbeat military history of the war that served as a training ground for Operation Desert Storm."

Donovan, James B. Strangers on a Bridge: The Case of Colonel Abel. New York: Atheneum, 1964. London: Secker & Warburg, 1964. New York: Popular Library, 1964. [pb]
Clark comment: Donovan was Abel's court-appointed lawyer. This book covers from the beginning of Donovan's association with the case in 1957 to the trade of Abel for Francis Gary Powers on Glienicker Bridge in 1962.
Pforzheimer terms Strangers on a Bridge "an interesting and valuable book" on Donovan's experiences with Abel. Chambers sees the book as a "remarkable telling of the Abel trial and the exchange of Abel for Powers"; this is a "very important book." For Constantinides, this book will not meet the need of researchers interested in Abel the intelligence officer and Soviet illegal.
Miskovsky, Studies 9.3 (Summer 1965), says Strangers on a Bridge "is a well-knit book"; the author "is a careful legal craftsman, and he also knows the ingredients of a good story." Beyond a review, Miskovsky provides additional information about the CIA's effort to set up a situation for the eventual exchange. "The necessary planning and coordination alone among State, Defense, Justice, CIA, and the White House were truly staggering."

"Most national estimates are not just group-think; worse still, they are bureaucratic group-think. They don't represent good analysis so much as they represent consensus, however brief.... Privatization may be the only answer for analytical competence, transparency, and product integrity."

Donovan, Michael. "National Intelligence and the Iranian Revolution." Intelligence and National Security 12, no. 1 (Jan. 1997): 143-163.
The author argues that "there was accurate and, in part, timely intelligence at the disposal of [U.S.] policy makers, but the availability of this information did not redirect the long-standing policy predispositions in Washington." It was "the nature of the US-Iranian relationship and bureaucratic maneuvering [that] limited Washington's policy options, not a lack of intelligence."
