Aldrich, I&NS 9.3, calls this work "impressive..... [A]n extended analysis of the unusual phenomenon of 'surprise' inflicted upon the United States by its close allies is the highpoint." In an earlier review, Fry, I&NS 7.4, argued that while this work is "briskly and clearly written" and analyzes a "judiciously selected set of central themes," it does not contain a lot that is new. In addition, it is possible to wonder about the author's command of the literature on the subject.

According to the BBC, the UK has unveiled "the 'Corax' unmanned stealth surveillance aircraft," a BAE systems development project. Commenting earlier on the Corax, Hoyle, Flight International, 19 Dec. 2005, adds that "the high-speed design uses a shrouded, above-fuselage engine and has an extended wing with moving control surfaces."

Hajek, Lester. "Target: CIA." Studies in Intelligence 6, no. 1 (Winter 1962): 29-55.

The author discusses the long life of the so-called Hohenlohe papers as anti-CIA psychological warfare. He specifically refers to three works -- Robert Edwards and Kenneth Dunne, A Study of a Master Spy, Allen Dulles (London: Housemans, 1961); Robert E. Light and Carl B. Marzani, Cuba vs. the CIA (London: Marzani and Munsell, 1961); and Fred J. Cook, "The CIA," Nation, 24 Jun. 1961 -- as "deliberate components of the Soviet psywar campaign" rooted in the falsifications of the Hohenlohe papers.

Constantinides comments that if the author's "aim was to tell the story of secret communications [in World War II] in perspective against the background of events[,] he did not succeed.... [E]rrors or inadequacies dot the work." For Nautical Brass Bibliography, http://members.aol.com/nbrass/biblio.htm, the work is "[l]ight on physical details, and [has a] fuzzy understanding of Enigma."

Peake, Studies 52.4 (Dec. 2008) and Intelligencer 17.1 (Winter-Spring 2009), notes that the author "does not provide any source notes," and "adds clumsy errors that detract from his analysis." Nevertheless, this is "a comprehensive picture of what is known and alleged. But it is not easy to tell the difference." For Goodman, I&NS 24.4 (Aug. 2009), the author's "uncritical use of oral history" introduces "several spurious claims.... The frequent errors not only undermine several of Hale's claims, but they also show a general lack of understanding of the Whitehall machinery at this time."

Hale, Richard W. "A CIA Officer in Saigon." Vietnam. [http://www.historynet.com/vn/blciaofficerinsaigon/]

The author arrived in Saigon in June 1973, serving at the CIA's Saigon base, first, as the head of "a new external branch focused on a target of opportunity, the Hungarian and Polish members of the International Commission for Control and Supervision (ICCS)" and, after a year, as base executive officer. His story is of the last days of the the CIA's presence in Saigon, up to his departure in April 1975.

Halebian, Olivia. "New Light on Old Spies: A Review of Recent Soviet Intelligence Revelations." Studies in Intelligence 9, no. 4 (Fall 1965): 77-92.

"For the first time since the Revolution the espionage exploits of the Soviet military intelligence service [GRU] and state security [KGB] have been officially acknowledged." This is a dramatic revision of official policy that the USSR does not engage in foreign espionage activities. Halebian looks at new works on Richard Sorge; GRU officer Col. Lev Manevich; executed GRU chief Semen Uritskiy; the German portion of the Rote Kapelle; Col. Rudolf Abel; Feliks Dzerzhinskiy; and a few other lesser known Chekists. In addition, there have been works published on the Trust operation of the 1920s.


Halevy, Efraim. Man in the Shadows: Inside the Middle East Crisis with a Man Who Led the Mossad. New York: St Martin's, 2006.

According to DKR, AFIO WIN 14-06 (3 Apr. 2006), the author headed Mossad from 1998 to 2002. "He draws portraits of world leaders and describes Mossad failures that made the news.... He also has something to say about how the world might deal with Islamist terrorist organizations. But don't expect to learn any of the secrets Mossad keeps."

Publishers Weekly's reviewer (via Amazon.com) calls this book a "20-year political history that includes much secret maneuvering but little skullduggery.... Halevy delivers insightful and often acerbic portraits of world leaders and shows a surprising sympathy toward the Arab point of view. He also describes several operational fiascoes that made the news."

For Peake, Studies 50.4 (2006) and Intelligencer 15.2 (Fall-Winter 2006-2007), this work seems to get off to a slow start, as the author spends the first 10 chapters sharing "his views on Israel's political problems since its creation." When he gets to discussing intelligence matters, Halevy "spends considerable space describing the problems that arise when the political masters, in his case Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, attempt to manage operations directly." In the end, he "leaves the impression that he has more to say."

Skelly, IJI&C 20.4 (Winter 2007), refers to Halevy's "elegantly written memoirs.... In his skilled hands," aspects of the Middle East that are often clouded in obscurity "emerge from the shadows." Although "short on details," Halevy's discussion of his modernization of the Mossad "is long on insights into the revitalization of an intelligence organization."
