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."

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."

Jensen, Joan M. Army Surveillance in America, 1775-1980. New Haven, CT: Yale University Press, 1991.
Dorwart, I&NS 8.2, comments that Jensen "places army spying within a broader context of national security policy and as part of an evolving American internal security program.... The growth of military surveillance of civilians during the war [WWI] accompanied the expansion of executive authority and federal bureaucracies." According to Surveillant 2.1, the author "sees a growing invisible intelligence empire within the U.S. government." Choice, Mar. 1992, sees this as a "clearly written history.... But there are a number of flaws." The book "wanders from its title statement ... [and] policy methodologies and conceptualizations are notably absent."

According to Petersen, this monograph is "important but not widely available." Pforzheimer says that this "well-researched text ... covers U.S. military intelligence activities from the American Revolution up to Vietnam." But emphasis is "given to the creation of a professional military intelligence corps in the U.S. Army ... from World War I to the present." Constantinides notes that the treatment of the subject is "both chronological and analytical."
