"Disregarding the period's traditional doctrine of military warfare, Francis Marion and his rag-tag brigade of partisans orchestrated a decisive campaign of espionage, guile, and speed meant to paralyze, if not expel the British Empire from their occupied colony."
Thomson, Allen. "Satellite Vulnerability: A Post-Cold War Issue?" Space Policy 2, no. 1 (Feb. 1995).
Thomson, Basil. The Allied Secret Service in Greece. London Hutchinson, 1931.
Constantinides notes that the "Allied Secret Service" in this case is the French, which Thomson portrays taking the lead in intelligence activities in Greece during World War I. "It is a passionate, strongly biased work on the direction political and diplomatic events took" because of the activities of the French naval attaché, Commander deRoquefeuil. Other than his claim to have seen a summary of the unpublished 1919 report of the French Chamber of Deputies' Naval Commission, "he does not say ... what the sources were for much of his material."

Thornton, Richard C. "The Unfulfilled Promise of Declassification." International Journal of Intelligence and Counterintelligence 11, no. 4 (Winter 1998-1999): 447-451.
The "cumbersome" declassification process established by E.O. 12958 has "become prohibitively expensive in funding, personnel, and time.... Budgets constraints will be the rule for the foreseeable future and efforts to downsize an already bloated bureaucracy work against the plans to allocate huge sums of money and personnel to the declassification process."
Thorpe, Elliott R. East Wind Rain: The Intimate Account of an Intelligence Officer in the Pacific, 1939-1949. Boston: Gambit, 1969.
Clark comment: This book's major claim to "fame" is Thorpe's two-pronged claim that, one, the Japanese signal "east wind rain" designated their planned attacks in the Pacific and, two, that the message was intercepted and read by the Dutch in early December. Both the nature of the purported message and its actual interception are matters of dispute. Constantinides notes that the author served as General MacArthur's "head of counterintelligence and civil intelligence." However, beyond the controversy engendered by his claims, the author "has relatively little of intelligence interest to tell in this personal narrative."

"While Washington focuses on the alleged Chinese theft of US weapons technology, experts say intelligence-gathering in the post-cold-war era is now far more sophisticated and involves a multitude of nations and motives -- economic, strategic, and political."
Thwaites, Michael. Truth Will Out: ASIO and the Petrovs. Sydney, Australia: Collins, 1980.
Michael Thwaites, former head of counter-espionage in the Australian Security Intelligence Organisation (ASIO), died on 1 November 2005 at the age of 90.
Constantinides notes that this book "gives Australian security's view of the Petrovs' defection as well as revealing that [the Petrovs'] Empire of Fear was ghost written by Thwaites."
Thwaites, Norman. Velvet and Vinegar. London: Grayson, 1932.
Thwaites was Wiseman's deputy in SIS' U.S. station prior to and during World War I.
Thyraud de Vosjoli, Philippe L. Lamia. Boston: Little, Brown, 1970.
According to Pforzheimer, these are the memoirs of a French intelligence officer who served in the French Resistance in World War II and who was SDECE liaison in Washington at the time of the Cuban Missile Crisis. Leon Uris fictionalized part of this story in his novel Topaz. Constantinides sees the author's intelligence activities relating to Cuba as of "strategic consequence and historical significance," but also notes that there has been no confirmation that his intelligence played an important role in the 1962 Cuban missile crisis.
