Fuchs, Meredith. "Judging Secrets: The Role Courts Should Play in Preventing Unnecessary Secrecy." Administrative Law Review 58, no. 1 (Winter 2006): 131-176.

"In the absence of of stronger judicial willingness to scrutinize secrecy claims, secrecy can be expected to continue to expand and undermine the public's ability to influence governmental policies."


Fukuyama Takashi. Boei Chuzaikan to iu Ninmu: 38-dosen no Gunji Interijensu [Duties of a Defense Attaché: Military Intelligence of the 38th Parallel] Tokyo: Wanibooks Plus, 2012.

For Mercado, Studies 57.1 (Mar. 2013), the author, a retired South Korean general, "contributes to the literature of Japanese intelligence by recalling his tour of duty in Seoul [1990-1993] and explaining what a Japanese defense attaché does, which turns out not to be too different from the work of US military attachés."

Fuller, Jean Overton. The German Penetration of SOE: France 1941-44. London: William Kimber, 1975.

Constantinides: This work argues that warnings received in London about the arrests of SOE agents by the Germans (and the continuation of operations under German control) were incorrectly interpreted because of incompetence rather than perfidy.

Constantinides: Khan was an SOE radio operator who died after being captured by the Germans. The 1957 edition added new material to the 1952 version. Fuller updates her views on Khan in The German Penetration of SOE. Clark comment: Khan's personal file from SOE was included in the May 2003 release of documents transferred to the National Archives, Kew. See also, Basu, Spy Princess (2006).

Fuller, Jean Overton. The Starr Affair. London: Victor Gollancz, 1954.

In Fuller's obituary, Bailey, Guardian, 17 May 2009, calls this work "an apologia for the actions of a captured SOE agent [John Starr] who helped the Germans while a prisoner in Paris."


Fuller, Kenneth C., Bruce Smith, and Merle Atkins. "'Rolling Thunder' and Bomb Damage to Bridges." Studies in Intelligence 13, no. 4 (Fall 1969): 1-9.

Rolling Thunder, the air campaign against North Vietnam, began on 2 March 1965. After some months, the CIA was tasked with preparing an assessment of the bombing campaign. The work on bomb damage to bridges is only one example of the reporting done on Rolling Thunder.


Funder, Anna. Stasiland. London: Granta, 2003.

According to Peake, Studies 47.4 (2003), the author "portrays life 'beyond the Wall' in vivid terms through the stories she learned from former Stasi officers, Stasi victims, and those going through the Stasi files captured after the collapse of East Germany." This collection of personal accounts is "told in a nimble but somber style.... There are no sources cited." However, "[t]his is a disturbing yet valuable book about ordinary life in an extraordinary authoritarian state."

Funk, Arthur Layton. Hidden Ally: The French Resistance, Special Operations, and the Landings in Southern France, 1944. Contributions in Military Studies Series. Westport, CT: Greenwood, 1992.

According to Surveillant 3.1, this is a "detailed and complete account of the role of the Allied intelligence services working with the French Resistance at the time of the southern France landings in the summer of 1944." There are "[f]ine maps and pictures.... If the book has a flaw it is too detailed, yet where else could one find in one place such complete coverage." La Clair, FILS 12.2 calls Hidden Ally an "accurate summary of the political and intelligence service rivalries ... during that fateful summer." The author's "very careful research ... is impressive." This is a "fine book."
