Heinlein, Bruce. "Could the British Have Won at Yorktown -- with GEOINT?" Pathfinder: The Geospatial Intelligence Magazine 5, no. 2 (Mar.-Apr. 2007): 18-19. [http://www.nga.mil]
"How did the British under Gen. Charles Cornwallis become trapped in this small port at a bend in the York River?... The bulk of the American army arrived before Cornwallis was aware that the Americans were moving. His intelligence failed him.... As a defendable site Yorktown paled in comparison to others locally available. Also, Cornwallis received intelligence too late on the movement of the large Continental Army. With better information, he might have escaped defeat."

"The monolithic KGB was broken up into several agencies.... [However,] the KGB's descendants still exert substantial power in post-Soviet Russia, and critics see ominous indications that old oppressive practices are reviving under President Vladimir Putin, a former KGB operative and one-time FSB director."

Helgerson, John. Getting to Know the President: CIA Briefings of Presidential Candidates, 1952-1992. Washington, DC: Center for the Study of Intelligence, Central Intelligence Agency, 1995. [Available at: https://www.cia.gov/library/center-for-the-study-of-intelligence/csi-publications/books-and-monographs/cia-briefings-of-presidential-candidates/index.htm]
In his "Foreword," Andrew calls this "an important and original book.... Helgerson provides the first detailed account of the way in which Agency briefers have attempted, with varying success, to adapt briefings to the different experience, priorities, and working patterns of successive presidents." Surveillant 4.4/5 exclaims, "Never before has the Agency disclosed much about the briefing of these presidents." Jonkers, AIJ 17.1/2, calls the work "[i]lluminating, interesting and recommended."
Clark comment: The book's importance may be arguable, but at a minimum it is original and, even more, it is certainly interesting. In light of all the uproar that would occur in later years over the hostage issue, it is worthy of note that the subject never came up in either the preelection or transition briefings of Reagan.
Helgerson, John. "Truman and Eisenhower: Launching the Process." Studies in Intelligence 38, no. 5 (1995): 65-77.
DCI Smith provided weekly briefings to President Truman. There was tension between Truman and Eisenhower over the President's invitation to the candidates to meet with him and the Cabinet for briefing on foreign affairs. Eisenhower accepted pre-election briefings from CIA, which began on 30 August 1952; Smith took over the briefing of the President-elect in November. Dulles provided weekly briefings at the NSC meeting, chaired by Eisenhower; at times, a follow-on meeting between the President, Dulles, and a staff aide would be held. Eisenhower authorized intelligence briefings of Stevenson in the 1956 campaign.

Hellen, Nicholas. "Agents in BBC Betrayed Dissidents." Sunday Times (London), 17 Oct. 1999. [http://www.the-times.co.uk]
According to "government intelligence sources responsible for BBC security," there is "[n]ew evidence ... that foreign governments planted many more agents within the BBC than was previously thought. The infiltration began after the second world war and continued until the early 1990s. The agents betrayed dissidents who were risking their lives smuggling news from within communist and Islamic fundamentalist states."
Heller, Jeffrey. "Israel Braces for Fallout from U.S. Spy Case." Reuters, 23 Apr. 2008. [http://www.reuters.com]
"Israel was tightlipped on [23 April 2008] over the arrest in the United States" of 84-year-old Ben-Ami Kadish "suspected of providing it with U.S. military secrets in the 1980s." Asked about the charges, Israeli Foreign Ministry spokesman Arye "Mekel declined to comment on the specific allegations, but said that 'since 1985 there have been strict instructions by Israeli prime ministers not to engage in any such activities in the United States.' Mekel added that the instructions 'were fully carried out.'"
Heller, Joseph. The Stern Gang: Ideology, Politics and Terror, 1940-1949. London: Frank Cass, 1995.
Maglio, I&NS 12.2, says Heller "casts new light" of this Jewish-underground movement. The work "is an admirable attempt at the objective reconstruction of an immensely complex subject; the range of primary sources is impressive.... Nevertheless, The Stern Gang seems sometimes overloaded by the amount of detail to the point where it can generate confusion.... Heller's style is undoubte[d]ly exhaustive and accurate, but also lacking in focus."
Helm, Sarah. A Life in Secrets: The Story of Vera Atkins and the Lost Agents of SOE. London: Little Brown, 2005. New York: Nan A. Talese, 2006.
According to Peake, Studies 50.1 (Mar. 2006), Atkins was "the very influential special assistant to the head of [SOE's] French branch, F Section, with particular responsibilities for selecting and training personnel." After the war, she went to Europe to try to discover what happened to the operatives who did not return, especially 12 women who she knew personally. This work "tells a fascinating tale about an exceptional woman."
Goulden, Intelligencer 15.2 (Fall-Winter 2006-2007), finds that the author "writes in near-novelistic style and is adept at exploring the emotional issues that are an inescapable part of her story.... In sum: new material, well-written, a highly readable account."

The Berlin court also convicted Weinrich's "co-defendant, Nabil Shritah, a former Syrian diplomat who served as a key witness for the prosecution, of being an accessory to the attack. He received a two-year suspended sentence." Weinrich "was extradited to Germany in 1995 after being arrested in Yemen. He is believed to have taken part in several other incidents, including a rocket attack against an Israeli plane at Orly airport in Paris in 1975."
Helm, Toby. "Germany Clashes with America over Intelligence." Telegraph (London), 25 Oct. 2001. [http://www.news.telegraph.co.uk]
"An intense dispute has flared up between America and Germany over which nation's intelligence services are most to blame for failing to prevent the terrorist attacks of September 11. The row ... has surfaced during a trip to Washington and New York by Otto Schily, the German interior minister."
Helm, Toby. "'Slush Fund' To Fight Communism." Telegraph (London), 2 Feb. 2000. [http://www.telegraph.co.uk]
In an interview with the Sueddeutsche Zeitung, former chancellor Helmut Schmidt said that "[t]he German government paid millions of pounds to political parties in Spain and Portugal in the Seventies to prevent a rise of communism.... As with the current party funding scandal, in which the Christian Democratic Union opposition has admitted channelling undeclared funds into secret foreign accounts, such a use of money by the Federal Intelligence Service is forbidden under German law."
Helsper, Charles H. "Periodic Reports by Industrial Groups as Sources of Intelligence Information." Studies in Intelligence 2, no. 2 (Spring 1958): 47-52.
The author argues that the intelligence community needs to address "the systematic study of industry at the corporate level. The basic source for such a study is provided by the periodic reports of the corporate bodies themselves."
Halverson, Sean. "Dangerous Patriots: Washington's Hidden Army during the American Revolution." Intelligence and National Security 25, no. 2 (Apr. 2010):. 123-146.
The author argues that Washington's "intelligence networks operated in [a] more proficient and modern manner than their British counterparts." He notes that as President, Washington "continued to construct and rely on his intelligence measures as a tool for his foreign policies in safeguarding the new republic."
Hembry, Boris. Malayan Spymaster: Memoirs of a Rubber Planter, Bandit Fighter and Spy. Singapore: Monsoon Books, 2011.
According to Peake, Studies 56.3 (Sep. 2012), this is the memoir of a person who fought with a stay-behind unit after the Japanese invaded Malaya, joined the British V-Force in India, and then joined MI6 through the end of the war. He again served British and local governments during the Malayan insurgency. "The counterinsurgency methods Hembry describes are instructive.... Malayan Spymaster reveals a different kind of intelligence experience in a little-known part of the Pacific war." King, NIPQ 29.1 (Jan. 2013), sees this as "a real-life spy thriller, simply and elegantly told with a large helping of information and detail gleaned from his experiences."
