Douglas, Gregory. Gestapo Chief: The 1948 Interrogation of Heinrich Müller. 3 vols. San Jose, CA: R. James Bender, 1995, 1997, 1998.

Clark comment: It is probably safe to assume that this work is at heart a fabrication, although how much of it comes from the whole cloth and how much from documents obtained under the Freedom of Information Act is difficult to determine.

It is, thus, easy to be surprised that M.R.D. Foot, I&NS 12.2, gives Douglas' work sufficient credibility to state: "If [this book is] true, it upsets many received ideas [including that Müller was killed in Berlin in April 1945]; if false, it helps to poison the wells of historical truth." Douglas seems to play loosely (Foot writes of "carelessness") with easily knowable facts. This habit "does not encourage belief" when the author provides what purports to be a transcript of a telephone conversation in which Churchill tells Roosevelt that a Japanese fleet is moving across the Pacific.

In a review of the second volume, Foot, I&NS 13.2, seems more willing to go beyond being merely skeptical. He states that the book "seems to have been written with internal American politics almost as much on its editor's mind as the European atrocities it recounts -- its tone is as passionately anti-Roosevelt as the previous volume's was anti-Churchill; its bias denies it credence."

Similar to Foot in his review of the first volume, Kruh, Cryptologia 21.4, seems overly solicitous to only advise that readers "proceed with caution because hard evidence is not available to verify every revelation." Problem areas include the purported Churchill-Roosevelt telephone conversation, the claim that Hitler escaped from Berlin to Barcelona, and assertions that the deaths at Auschwitz numbered no more than 100,000 and were primarily due to typhus and other diseases. Kruh, Cryptologia 23.1, reviews volume three, again with only a brief notation that "hard evidence is not available to support many of Muller's controversial assertions."

Peake, Studies 48.1/102/fn13, comments that "[t]he documentary evidence he [Douglas] purports to have remains his secret. Th[e] facsimile documents he includes in his books are said by experts to be of his own making and cannot be found in the National Archives."

See R. Mohan Srivastava, Phillip L. Kushner, and Thomas K. Kimmel, "A Diplomatics Analysis of a Document Purported to Prove Prior Knowledge of the the Attack on Pearl Harbor," Intelligence and National Security 24, no. 4 (Aug. 2009): 586-611. The authors conclude that the purported Churchill-Roosevelt transcript in Gestapo Chief "is almost certainly a forgery, one likely produced by someone whose native language was English and not German."

Douglas, Hugh. Jacobite Spy Wars: Moles, Rogues and Treachery. Stroud: Sutton, 1999.

Royal Historical Society Database: 1720-1788. From publisher: This book "unravels an unending intelligence war on and off the battlefield that drew in people from Sussex smugglers to Highland clansmen. Across Europe 'moles' dug for secrets at every court, and kings, ambassadors, soldiers, cardinals and royal mistresses all took part. This book sheds light on the dark underbelly of the Jacobite century, and reflects the best an[d] the worst, the triumph and the tragedy, of the moment."

There has been a "long, complex, and pervasive relationship between RIT and the CIA.... [T]he College of Graphic Arts and Photography received about $200,000 from the CIA in grants from 1966 to 1975. In 1985 it was reported that '30 RIT ... students have gone to work just for the National Security Agency and the Central Intelligence Agency.' Most of the students were from computer science, math, engineering and imaging science programs." [Footnotes omitted] See also, Denise K.

"Strong circumstantial evidence suggests that intelligence officers and the various intelligence services do play a large role in securing, supporting, and facilitating exports" of arms. The author believes that there is good justiification for such an involvement, and argues that it should be more open.

McGonagle, Intelligencer 19.1 (Winter-Spring 2012), finds that the editors "take a particular event in British post World War II history" and approach it by providing an actual document and having an author discuss the implications of that document. This is "an interesting read for individuals not familiar with British intelligence" in this period. For Peake, Studies 56.3 (Sep. 2012) and Intelligencer 19.3 (Winter-Spring 2013), "[t]his is a thoughtful, informative book that applies to the profession generally."

Mansfield, Studies 84.1 (Mar. 2010), finds Sir David Ormand's to be the "most insightful essay" in this collection.The reviewer, a former public affairs officer at the CIA, takes issue with Richard Aldrich's view that U.S. intelligence agencies have enjoyed a close relationship with the press. For Wirtz, IJI&C 24.1 (Spring 2011), this "eclectic group of essays ... demonstrates that relations between intelligence professionals and the media are multifacted, nuanced, and sometimes unexpected." Wippl, I&NS 27.4 (Aug. 2012), comments that "[a]ll the articles are a worthwhile read."

Peake, Studies 59.1 (Mar. 2015), finds that 35 authors from eight different countries are represented in this work. It "gives a good idea of the progress of intelligence studies over the past 30 years, the important questions that have yet to be answered, and the areas that will dominate the field for the foreseeable future."
