From the "Preface": "This book attempts to present an organizational history of Military Intelligence" in the U.S. Army "from its beginnings to the present. It makes no pretense at discussing the operational aspects of intelligence in detail.... [T]he book focuses its attention on the Army and necessarily slights the complex interrelationships between Army intelligence and other organizations in the intelligence community." Kruh, Cryptologia 26.2, calls this a "superb volume" that combines a narrative history of U.S. military intelligence with "lineages and heraldic data for 108 military intelligence units.... It is a unique history that belongs in your personal library."

Gilbert, James L., John P. Finnegan, and Ann Bray. In the Shadow of the Sphinx: A History of Counterintelligence. Fort Belvoir: Department of the Army, 2005.

Sulick, Studies 50.4 (2006), concludes that Gilbert's "stories of the prowess and courage of individual agents and his frank assessment of Army counterintelligence flaws, its problematic role in the domestic subversion arena, and difficult evolution into an accepted part of the Army mission all make In the Shadow of the Sphinx a compelling story for historians, intelligence and counterintelligence professionals, and general readers who simply like good spy yarns."
