According to Phillips, IJIC 1.1, Lt. Col. Sir Claude Edward Majoribanks Dansey "was an intelligence mover and shaker ... from the turn of the century through World War II." He was allowed "to establish his own European Service -- the 'Z Organization'" but that organization was "penetrated beyond redemption by Nazi intelligence." This book "deserves a place on the bookshelf of any serious student of the British silent services." On the other hand, Sexton advises that the work "[s]hould be used with caution."

Rocca and Dziak note that this book "[s]ustains the dubious thesis that the Roessler ... material was fed to the Soviets ... at the direct insistence and oversight of Churchill.... [It] asserts that Foote and 'Sissy' (Rachel Dubendorfer) were British-controlled agents. No footnotes or source citations."

Surveillant 1.5, 2.6: "Well-written, scholarly biography of American code clerk, Tyler G. Kent,... allegedly subverted by the Soviets ... and later convicted of stealing some 2,000 classified messages from the U.S. Embassy in London during the late 1930's and early 1940's.... Highly recommended."

Record, Jeffrey. Beating Goliath: Why Insurgencies Win. Dulles, VA: Potomac, 2007.
Neiberg, Proceedings 133.9 (Sep. 2007), declares that this book's "brevity and clarity of writing make it accessible" to a wide audience. The author stresses the role of external assistance to the success of insurgencies. He attributes America's lack of success against insurgencies (indeed, lack of adeptness) to a failure to think beyond the use of force and adjust to this form of warfare.
For Markel, Parameters 38.3 (Autumn 2008), the author highlights the view that the major schools of thought on why insurgencies succeed or fail do not "accord the factor of external support its due weight.... He illustrates the importance of such help with brief but pithy analyses of prominent insurgent victories.... Unfortunately for Record, his analysis of the current war in Iraq is a 'snapshot in time' and no longer up to date."

Cordesman, NWCR 59.1 (Winter 2006), finds that this critique of the Iraq war "provides many important insights into the reasons for the war and for its successes and failures." However, this book "is a policy argument, not a dispassionate analysis, and needs to be read as such. There are also times when his focus on the argument gets in the way of his analysis." Nevertheless, "this is a remarkably insightful book, one that raises precisely the issues that need to be resolved when assessing the Iraq war and shaping an American strategic posture for the future."
