"Plotting for the strikes against the World Trade Center and the Pentagon was initially centered in Germany. Three of the four killer aircraft pilots -- including the apparent ringleader Mohamed Atta -- lived for as long as nine years in the port city of Hamburg, where they studied at technical colleges and constituted an al Qaeda 'sleeper' cell. During their long stay, none of them was spotted by German intelligence."

"It is now a conventional trope that Vladimir Putin is a mystery. But why he was promoted to a position where he now stands poised to win the presidency of Russia in next Sunday's elections is not a mystery. He is very good, and particularly so in the areas where a modern politician must be. He is a consummate public performer. From its dark bowels the K.G.B. has produced a star, one who speaks of his former institution with proud dignity."

Proceedings 121.1 (Jan. 1995), says that this book is a "collection of spy-related information" which "will appeal to a wide audience of espionage fans." For Surveillant 4.1, "this is not a book to trust," but it "does have a splendid assortment of historical photographs and drawings." Kruh, Cryptologia 20.1, finds that this book "provides an enormous amount of information in a relatively small volume." It contains "fascinating details on a wide variety of intelligence subjects."

From advertisement for 2001 edition: The LRDG "became one of the greatest legends of the North African Campaign in World War II. This classic insider's account has been updated and supplemented with rare photographs from the LRDG collection in the Imperial War Museum." According to Kelly, I&NS 16.1, this account by the unit's fourth and last commanding officer was first published in 1980 and takes the story of the LRDG through its disbanding in June 1945. Because of the absence of references to Ultra, the reviewer suggests that this work be read along with John Gordon, The Other Desert War (1987).

He writes that Congress enacted the transformational Goldwater-Nichols Defense Reorganization Act "over bitter objections" from DoD, but its passage cleared the way for the Cohen-Nunn Amendment and the creation of USSOCOM.

'conventional wisdom'... Occam's Razor"); the policymaker ("intelligence analyst must convince the wielder of power"); and the system ("bureaucratic inertia").
