From publisher: "The memoir of SOE agent Benjamin Cowburn is rightly regarded as a classic of wartime literature.... Cowburn explains the methods of special agents who were dropped into France during the war and the ways that agents would set about establishing secure networks with the French Resistance."


Cowden, Robert. "OSS Double-Agent Operations in World War II." Studies in Intelligence 58, no. 2 (Jun. 2914): 35-45.

Though brief in duration, the double-agent operations of OSS's counterintelligence division (X-2) "provided significant counterintelligence value by enabling the Allies to understand and ultimately control Abwehr espionage activities in France after the invasion. Secondarily, the double agents also offered tactical contributions to several deception oprations."


Cowell, Alan. "Blair Did Not Knowingly Use False Report, Inquiry Is Told." New York Times, 12 Aug. 2003. []

On 11 August 2003, "[s]enior government officials told a high-profile inquiry ... that intelligence officers had registered their concern at the way Prime Minister Tony Blair's government presented the threat from Iraq's weapons systems before going to war. But the officials ... denied that the government knowingly used false information to create a sense of imminent threat from Iraq."

From publisher: "In the dark and uncertain days of 1941 and 1942, when Rommel's Afrika Korps was sweeping towards Egypt and the Suez Canal, a small group of daring raiders made history for the Allies.... The men were the ... SAS, the brainchild of David Stirling.... Virginia Cowles's ... narrative, based on the eyewitness testimony of the men who took part, gives a fascinating insight into the early years of the SAS."

Miller, I&NS 9.3: Cowley was "project manager for the 'Supergun.'" He displays a "tendency ... to leap readily to conclusions where the evidence is, to say the least, sparse."

Cox, Douglas. "Burn After Viewing: The CIA's Destruction of the Abu Zubaydah Tapes and the Law of Federal Records." Journal of National Security Law & Policy 5, no. 1 (2011). []

The author argues that "the CIA should have treated the tapes as records and, had it done so, the much publicized debates within the CIA and the White House over whether it was politically palatable to destroy them and questions about their relevance to ongoing cases and government inquiries would have been largely academic. The federal records laws, properly applied, would have required the preservation of the tapes."

Cox, Sebastian. "'The Difference between Black and White': Churchill, Imperial Politics, and Intelligence before the 1941 Crusader Offensive." Intelligence and National Security 9, no. 3 (Jul. 1994): 405-447.

The author argues that Churchill orchestrated a "cooked" -- although in the end not inaccurate -- report on the relationship between German and allied air forces in the Middle East prior to the Crusader offensive. The reason for doing so was Commonwealth politics or, more specifically, concerns expressed by the Australian and New Zealand governments about a potential lack of allied air superiority in the theater, as had been the case in Greece and Crete.

The author looks at the indirect accusation by Pavel Sudoplatov that Carter had been a GRU agent during the war. In the end, Coyle can only reach the conclusion that "a fair assessment is that the allegation is plausible."

"Since most ISR assets continue to support USCENTCOM, other theaters competing for remaining scarce ISR resources (such as USEUCOM) should develop requirements-based strategies to better integrate current and planned allied capabilities and thereby offset their collection shortfalls."
