1. "The Control of Visual Representation: American Art Policy in Occupied Germany, 1945-1949." Intelligence and National Security 18, no. 2 (Summer 2003): 283-299.
"The post-war development of West German fine arts was the result of both the spontaneous revival of the German art scene, and the implementation of an OMGUS [Office of the Military Government for Germany, US] political agenda targeted at the use of art as a tool for political re-education."
2. Capturing the German Eye: American Visual Propaganda in Occupied Germany. Chicago: University of Chcago Press, 2009.
Dolan, Perspectives on Politcs 9.1 (Mar. 2011), says that "this informative and crisply written book ... analyzes how the Americans, who initially concentrated on photography and film..., gradually extended their efforts to painting and sculpture as they grasped the significance of these fine arts to the cultural consciousness of ordinary, as well as educated, Germans."
Goldstein, Donald, and Katherine V. Dillon, eds. The Pearl Harbor Papers: Inside the Japanese Plans. Washington, DC: Brassey's (US), 1993.
According to Bates, NIPQ 11.1, this book contains "translations of documents by Japanese naval officers involved in the planning and execution of the attack on Pearl Harbor.... [The] authors contend that these documents prove, in so far as memory can be trusted, that the Japanese task force never broke radio silence until the strike was in the air, and that neither Churchill nor Roosevelt could have known of the attack plan." Kruh, Cryptologia 18.1, also notes the presence of "records confirming that the Japanese task force never broke radio silence," and calls this work a "major contribution to our understanding of that unforgettable day."
Goldstein, Frank L., and Benjamin F. Findley, Jr., eds. Psychological Operations: Principles and Case Studies. Maxwell Air Force Base, AL: Air University Press, 1996.
Stech, Parameters (Autumn 1997), finds two "original, worthwhile" chapters in this edited work -- one on Poland's underground media (Laurence Orzell) and the other on psychological operations during Operation Just Cause in Panama (Dennis Walko). "Unfortunately, the remainder of this anthology is disappointing." A number of the older articles have been bypassed by events.
For Jacobson, Special Warfare (Spring 1999), the strength of this work "lies in the expertise and experience of its editors and contributors." However, the volume "has suffered at the hands of time and several of its essays are notably dated." The case studies were "developed largely within the framework of the Cold War," and "there are almost no references to the profound technological advances and political revolutions that have already affected the nature of PSYOP as a tool of diplomacy and as a weapon of war."

Goldstein, Richard. "Andre Devigny, 82; Escaped Gestapo Prison." New York Times, 27 Feb. 1999. [http://www.nytimes.com]
"Andre Devigny, a legendary figure in the French Resistance for his escape from the Gestapo chief Klaus Barbie's prison in German-occupied Lyons during World War II, has died at his home in Hauteville-sur-Fier, France. Devigny, whose dash to freedom inspired the French director Robert Bresson's award-winning film 'A Man Escaped,' was 82."
Goldstein, Richard. "Robert de La Rochefoucauld, Wartime Hero and Spy, Dies at 88." New York Times, 9 Jul. 2012. [http://www.nytimes.com]
Trained by SOE and parachuted into France in June 1943, Count de La Rochefoucauld's work with the Resistance was the stuff of legend. Twice captured by the Nazis, he escaped each time. "At his death he was believed to have been one of the last living Frenchmen of Churchill's S.O.E."

Rossinow, H-1960s, H-Net Reviews (Jul. 2006) [http://www.h-net.org], notes that Coffin was employed by the CIA in its early years. "The particular uses ... made of him reflected both his language abilities and his remarkable social skills." He "developed extensive contacts with 'White Russian' communities in France and elsewhere, exiles from the Soviet regime, and as a CIA employee he trained anti-Soviet agents who were parachuted into the Soviet Union (it failed badly; the men were caught)."
