"In the early days of World War II, reconnaissance became a primary mission for the U.S. submarine force.... Periscope photography was investigated [earlier], but its effectiveness as an intelligence collection tool did not come about until late 1943.... Submarines proved to be the intelligence-gathering force that allowed Japanese fleet movements to be tracked and reported."

This review of the many facets of intelligence practiced by America's "first foreign intelligence directorate, the ... Committee of Secret Correspondence," is well worth a read.

Peake, Studies 54.3 (Sep. 2010) and Intelligencer 18.1 (Fall-Winter 2010), notes that the author served for 2 years with the CIC in postwar Germany. The book's strength "lies in his descriptions of the training, tradecraft, and agent-control techniques he developed in the field."

The Combat Talon, "[f]irst modified and sent to Southeast Asia (SEA) in 1966," is described by Maj. Gen. USAF (Ret.) James L. Hobson, Jr. as "the most versitile C-130 ever produced" and "the weapons system of choice for long-range, clandestine operations." ("Foreword," p. xv)

Thirsk, James. Bletchley Park: An Inmate's Story. Bromley, UK: Galago, 2008.

The author worked as a traffic analyst attached to Hut 6 from the spring of 1942 until the end of the war. For Christensen, Cryptologia 34.1 (Jan. 2010), the book "is a bit disappointing" and "provides little that is new." Although he has some "new tales of life at Bletchley Park," the author "does not do as well when he writes about things that he did not expeience or people whom he did not meet."
