"Israel is ratcheting up calls on Washington to release convicted spy Jonathan Pollard.... Israeli leaders say that after 27 years the former civilian intelligence analyst for the U.S. Navy should be freed. But the White House is standing firm, rejecting Israeli appeals based in part on claims that Pollard suffers from life-threatening ailments."

"Conspiratorial thinking offers a possible form of defence against humiliation,[footnote omitted] and many former chekists have turned to conspiracy theories as a way of making sense of the traumatic events of the past few decades."

Peake, Studies 57.2 (Jun. 2013), calls this work "a unique and absorbing look into the history of Russia's intelligence profession, with some disturbing conclusions about its future. A very valuable contribution."

According to Anderson, Intelligencer 10.3, this autobiography covers the author's "adventures as a WWII partisan in Czechoslovakia and his early Cold War work as an agent of US intelligence.... This is a 'nuts and bolts' view into a confusing and messy period.... Fedornak doesn't try to deal with the grand design of the events in which he played a part. Instead,... he shows the reader what he did and how he survived."

Fedoroff, George E. "The Bear Comes to Call: or, Would you have ever thought that...." Naval Intelligence Professionals Quarterly 11, no. 2 (Apr. 1995): 5-6.

On visit of RADM Vladimir Mikhailovich Fedorov, Deputy Director of the Intelligence Directorate of the Russian Navy, to Norfolk, VA, in November 1994, for the annual SACLANT Maritime Intelligence Conference. The article includes a brief biographic (career) profile and some minor details about Russian naval intelligence. These include the comment that: "RADM Fedorov said that the Naval Intelligence Directorate is an autonomous entity, separate from (but obviously interacting with) the Main Intelligence Directorate (GRU) of the General Staff."

This article is accompanied by a companion piece: Phil McKnight [CAPT/USN (Ret.)], compiler, "The Bear Speaks," Naval Intelligence Professionals Quarterly 11, no. 2 (Apr. 1995), pp. 6-7, which "attempts to capture the essence of [Fedorov's] talk, along with some informal chitchat." Included here are remarks on Russian military doctrine and naval strategy. Beyond the speech, McKnight notes that Fedorov uses a laptop computer with DOS and Windows.

In the 1939-1942 period, "an integrated infrastructure was painstakingly established [in the Britih armed services] to extract, collate and assess material obtained from Axis POWs.... There is no question that intelligence gleaned from enemy POWs was crucial in the Allied victory.... The caveat, however, was that this information complemented other sources of intelligence, and was used in conjunction with these sources."

Feeney argues that while Brugioni's work is "the definitive work" on the Cuban Missile Crisis, Brugioni's broader political analysis is flawed by "his general adulation of President Kennedy."

The Bay of Pigs is remembered by a Navy intelligence officer who was stationed at Guantanamo Naval Base at the time and who was operationally involved in support activities.

Fehrenbach, T.R. This Kind of War: A Study in Unpreparedness. New York: Macmillan, 1963.

Clark comment: Fehrenbach provides little coverage of the intelligence aspects of the war, and is too lacking in the embellishments of serious research to be well regarded. However, first read near contemporaneously with its original publication and reread 30 years later, it remains for this reviewer one of his favorite depictions of the Korean War.
