Tate, Air & Space Power Journal (n.d.), says that this is "incredibly light, albeit interesting and informative, reading on World War II." However, "the items presented are not secrets at all but [simply] little-known facts."

To Peake, Studies 57.4 (Dec. 2013), the author's "speculation has only fortune-cookie plausibility and fails to illuminate this dark corner of counterintelligence history." Try Schecter and Deriabin, The Spy Who Saved the World (1992) instead.

"[T]he transformation of intelligence architectures, particularly in the West, is no less profound than that of the weapons, platforms and warfighting systems they are designed to support and enhance."
Dupont, Daniel G. "Trust Us, We're Spies." Mother Jones, 7 Jul. 1999. [http://www.motherjones.com]
"The CIA ... [is] fighting a Freedom of Information Act request to reveal the 1999 intel budget, claiming that exposing the numbers would pose a threat to national security."
DuPree, Sherry Sherrod, and Herbert C. DuPree. Exposed!!! Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Unclassified Reports on Churches and Church Leaders. Washington, DC: Middle Atlantic Regional Press, 1993.
In the judgment of Theoharis, JAH 80.4, this book of reprinted documents "is of limited value." The DuPrees' "introduction to the forty-three pages of reprinted FBI documents is perfunctory, and they offer no rationale for the selection of specific case files and for reprinting the specific documents. Their sample is neither comprehensive nor representative.... [T]he prospective researcher will more profitably consult Unlocking the Files of the FBI," by Haines and Langbart.

Durbin, Richard J. "Holes in America's Defense." Washington Post, 9 Jul. 2004, A19. [http://www.washingtonpost.com]
Senator Durbin (D-IL) argues that while the SSCI report "reveals in stark terms that in many key areas, the prewar intelligence regarding Iraq's threat to the United States was neither reliable nor accurate," it "tells only half of the story." Missing from the report are "the ways intelligence was used, misused, misinterpreted or ignored by administration policymakers in deciding to go to war and in making the case to the American people that war with Iraq was necessary.... [W]e have a report that asks only some of the right questions and, at best, comes to only some of the right conclusions."

Durning, Marvin B. World Turned Upside Down: U. S. Naval Intelligence and the Cold War Struggle for Germany. Dulles, VA: Potomac, 2007.
Rielage, NIPQ 24.3 (Jun. 2008), comments that this work "is less a history than a long, affectionate anecdote." Nonetheless, it "is a charming reminder that naval intelligence was an integral part of both the post-war landscape in Germany and of the efforts that ultimately won the Cold War." To Mengel, NIJ 1.1 (2009), the author "provides enlightening details about the personnel and operations of the Munich station" of Naval Intelligence. "Durning's style is easy to read," but it "occasionally tends toward the melodramtic and at times seems more like a mystery novel than a memoir."
For Anderson, Intelligencer 17.2 (Fall 2009), this "book is centered on Durning's short [one year] tour of duty in Munich, and is fattened up by slightly extraneous, though interesting, biographies of his German co-workers and of his commanding officer." Overall, however, the author "provides a well-written glimpse back at events in turmoil of post-war Germany mixed in with the greater turmoil of the early years of the Cold War."
Durovecz, Andrew. My Secret Mission: The Story of a Young Canadian in the Special Operations Executive (SOE) during World War II. Toronto: Lugus, 1996.
From publisher: The author, a Hungarian immigrant to Canada as a child, joined SOE in 1942. In 1944, "he was one of a party of four dropped by parachute on to Slovak territory." After crossing into Hungary, Durovecz was captured, but "later escaped and fought on the side of the Russians in the siege of Budapest."

Peake, Studies 56.4 (Dec. 2012), says that these two self-published volumes "set new lows in intelligence books.... [N]either volume is worth the price."
Dux, Frank. The Secret Man: An American Warrior's Uncensored Story. New York: Regan Books, 1996.
Warren, WIR 15.4, says that "Dux is so factually challenged that little in his book can be believed except the generalities that could have been gotten from books or newspapers. Hogwash is a totally inadequate term for The Secret Man.... [N]othing Dux writes of his work for the CIA is true," including any affiliation with the Agency.
Duyvesteyn, Isabelle. "Hearts and Minds. Cultural Awareness and Good Intelligence: The Blueprint for Successful Counter-Insurgency?" Intelligence and National Security 26, no. 4 (Aug. 2011): 445-459.
The author "argues that the hearts and minds ideas, the emphasis on intelligence and cultural awareness[,] are often problematic both for their methodological foundation and empirical weight."
Duyvesteyn, Isabelle, Ben de Jong, and Joop van Reijn, eds. The Future of Intelligence: Challenges in the 21st Century. London: Routledge, 2014.
According to Peake, Studies 59.1 (Mar. 2015), this work is comprised of 11 "thought-provoking papers" from a 2011 conference hosted by the Netherlands Intelligence Studies Association. The book "raises important issues that deserve serious attention."
