Young is a "former senior military analyst with the CIA" working on a doctorate at Ohio State University. He offers the standard criticisms expected from a disillusioned former DI hand. He does suggest centralizing assessment in CIA and abolishing DIA and INR. He would create a "National Intelligence University," to improve analyst training.

From publisher: "From North Africa to Normandy, from the jungles of South East Asia to the shores of Sicily, a small group of deception planners, aided by experienced soldiers and civilians, turned their attention to outwitting the enemy. A subtle combination of guile, disinformation and illusion was intended to persuade the enemy to commit his men and resources in the wrong place and at the wrong time, by such means as dummy tanks and guns and more sophisticated deception, culminating in the triumph of the D-Day landings."
