Frolik, Josef. The Frolik Defection: The Memoirs of an Agent. London: Leo Cooper, 1975.

Frost, David. "An Interview with Richard Helms." Studies in Intelligence (Fall 1981): 1-29. Studies in Intelligence: 45th Anniversary Special Edition (Fall 2000): 107-136.

"Adapted from an interview with Mr. Helms taped by David Frost in Washington, 22-23 May 1978."


Frost, Mike, and Michel Gratton. Spyworld: Inside the Canadian and American Intelligence Establishments. Toronto: Doubleday Canada, 1994.

Frum, David, and Richard Perle. An End to Evil: How to Win the War on Terror. New York: Random House, 2003.

Terrill, Parameters 34 (Winter 2004-2005), comments that the authors have "outlined an agenda as sweeping as the title of their book and every bit as unrealistic." Frum and Perle attack the State Department and the intelligence community, "but they also have some hard things to say about the military, whose leaders are described as nothing more than bureaucrats in uniform." Essentially, "this book presents shallow and supercilious answers to complex questions and in doing so threatens to create more problems than it solves."


Fry, Helen. Spymaster: The Secret Life of Kendrick. London: Marranos Press, 2014.

Norton-Taylor, The Guardian, 10 Feb. 2015, sees this as "an exhaustively-researched book on a man" who from the British Passport Office in Vienna helped "thousands of Jews escape from Austria before the outbreak" of World War II." Back in Britain at the beginning of the war, "Kendrick and a small team began to operate the Combined Services Detailed Interrogation Centre.... His task was to interrogate enemy prisoners of war." Fry's "book could be edited down -- there is almost too much detail in it. But it is an extremely valuable contribution to our understanding of a secret world inhabited by brave, resilient, sometimes exotic, individuals."

See also, Fry's The M Room: Secret Listeners Who Bugged the Nazis in WW2 (2012).

Noting that the author "does not link the sources in her bibliography with any specific events<' Peake, Studies 59.1 (Mar. 2015), adds that this makes it "difficult to evaluate her conclusions about the value of Kendrick's operations."


Fry, Michael Graham. "The Uses of Intelligence: The United Nations Confronts the United States in the Lebanon Crisis, 1958." Intelligence and National Security 10, no. 1 (Jan. 1995): 59-91.

Fry argues that UN Secretary General Hammarskjold achieved considerable success in 1958. This success was in no small part due to the "reach and accuracy" of the intelligence gathered through the United Nations Observer Group in Lebanon (UNOGIL), in competition with the CIA.


Fry, Michael G., and Miles Hochstein. "Epistemic Communities: Intelligence Studies and International Relations." Intelligence and National Security 8, no. 3 (Jul. 1993): 14-28.

"[I]ntelligence studies have been and remain a very modest part of the intellectual agenda of the international relations community."


Fryer, Mary Beacock. Loyalist Spy: The Experiences of Captain John Walden Meyers During the American Revolution. Brockville, Ont., Canada: Besancourt, 1974.

Constantinides: "Meyers, who was from New York State, served as a Loyalist spy," operating under the British Northern Department headquartered in Canada. "From Fryer's description, a good deal of this service was as courier for the British between Canada and New York City, although Meyers achieved fame at the time for his attempt to kidnap the American General Philip Schuyler."


Fryxell, Alma. "Psywar by Forgery." Studies in Intelligence 5, no. 1 (Winter 1961): 25-51.

The author discusses and provides examples of douments forged and disseminated by Soviet, Chinese, and Bloc intelligence agencies during 1957-1959. Some were "sniper shots at individual important targets," while others "formed rather elaborate progressions in prolonged campaigns."
