Hisey, Braden W. [CAPT/USMC] "Producing a More Practical Tactical Intelligence Officer." Marine Corps Gazette, Dec. 1998, 13-15.

In 1993, the Marine Corps began a "major overhaul of how it prepares and assigns officers to serve in the intelligence field." The author finds that improvements have occurred, but additional changes -- improvements -- are still needed.


Hiss, Alger. In the Court of Public Opinion. New York: Knopf, 1957.

Clark comment: This is not so much an autobiography as a defense brief to the court of public opinion. In a review of Hiss' book, Sidney, Hook. "A Fateful Chapter of Our Times," New York Times Book Review, 12 May 1957, 1, 28, rejects Hiss' protestations of innocence.


History Channel. Secrets of War: Sworn to Secrecy -- Breaking the Japanese Codes. http://www.secretsofwar.com.

According to Kruh, Cryptologia 24.2, this one-hour documentary "uses still film and live action footage to provide an exciting history of code breaking by the United States." It is one of the 52-part "Secrets of War" series.


Hitchcock, Walter T. [COL], ed. The Intelligence Revolution: A Historical Perspective. Washington, DC: U.S. Air Force Academy/Office of Air Force History, 1988.  Washington, DC: GPO, 1992.

Clark comment: This book contains the proceedings of the Thirteenth Military History Symposium held at the U.S. Air Force Academy in 1988. The "revolution" is of intelligence collection and cooperation, particularly during World War II. This is a scholarly, not operational, work. Seymour says that the work "[p]rovides information on the origins of modern intelligence, intelligence during World War II and the Korean War, impact on postwar diplomacy, etc."

Hiter, Charles L. [CAPT/USA] "Overview of Joint STARS: Capabilities and Employment." Military Intelligence 30, no. 3 (Jul.-Sep. 2004): 20-27.

The author seeks to provide "some insight in how to employ the E-8C Joint Surveillance Target Attack Radar System (Joint STARS) aircraft better in mission planning, collection operations, and maneuver operations." The article includes "a general overview of the E-8C Joint STARS capabilities, pre-mission tasking and planning, and two employment scenarios, one supporting pre-mission collection operations and the other supporting maneuver operations."


Hittle, J.B.E. Michael Collins and the Anglo-Irish War: Britain's Counterinsurgency Failure. Dulles, VA: Potomac Books, 2011.

Peake, Studies 56.2 (Jun. 2012), finds that "[p]articular attention is given to the network of informers Collins organized, the insurgency techniques he developed and exploited so effectively, the role of propaganda, and his ruthless use of assassination to achieve his goals." The author also "provides detailed critical analysis" of British intelligence and its attempts to counter Collins's operations.

Hixson, Walter L. Parting the Curtain: Propaganda, Culture, and the Cold War, 1945-1961. New York: St. Martin's, 1997. London: Macmillan, 1997.

According to Caffrey, History 26.1, the author examines the "cultural infiltration" of the Soviet bloc through propaganda and cultural exchange programs. Hixson details the development of the Voice of America, Radio Liberty and Radio Free Europe, and the instruments of cultural diplomacy. Rawnsley, I&NS 14.2, finds this to be "a fascinating and comprehensive study of early Cold War propaganda.... Hixson's research is impressive.... [He has] produced a book that is based more on primary sources than any other recent treatments of the same subject."
