Malcom, Ben S. [COL/USA (Ret.)], with Ron Martz. White Tigers: My Secret War in North Korea. Washington, DC: Brassey's, 1995.

The reviewer at notes that this book "is about N[orth] Korean nationalists ... waging covert actions - espionage, sabotage and guerrilla war - against their fellow N[orth] Koreans." The guerrillas were organized by the U.S. 8th Army 8240th Unit, and operated out of Paengnyong Island. The Korean units "more or less ran their covert actions without direct American involvement," although Malcom claims to have gone on a raid onto the North Korean mainland. Malcom also "gives a brief summary of the covert actions by the 8th Army, US Air Force (NICK) and CIA (JACK)."

Mallett, Robert. "The Anschluss Question in Italian Defence Policy, 1933-37." Intelligence and National Security 19, no. 4 (Winter 2004): 680-694.

Abstract: This "essay argues that only with Ethiopia conquered, and the Axis relationship a prominent feature of fascist policy, was it possible for Mussolini to consider Italian accession to a full Austro-German union. At that point military planning and intelligence work no longer considered the likelihood of an Italo-German armed clash over Austria."

"[T]he Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF) conducted covert aerial collection programs throughout the 1950s, which were leveraged with the tripartite American, British, and Canadian (ABC) intelligence architecture to Canada's benefit, and they contributed to the Cold War deterrence of the Soviet Union."

The author offers a "brief summary of the activities of some ... of the individuals in our pantheon of forgers and fabricators."


Mandel, Robert. The Changing Face of National Security: A Conceptual Analysis. Westport, CT: Greenwood , 1994.

From publisher: The author, first, develops "a framework of the conceptual components of national security," and, then, "focuses on analyzing change -- both in priorities and tradeoffs -- in military security, economic security, resource/environmental security, and political/cultural security."


Mandel, Robert. "On Estimating Post-Cold War Enemy Intentions." Intelligence and National Security 24, no. 2 (Apr. 2009): 194-215.

Using Garthoff's 1978 article that identifies "common fallacies" in U.S. "government estimates of enemy intentions" [Raymond L. Garthoff, "On Estimating and Imputing Intentions," International Security 2 (Winter 1978): 22-32], the author concludes that "the challenges to accurate intelligence assessment of enemy intentions, and the need to move away from dysfunctional standard operating procedures, have never been higher."

Mandelbaum, W. Adam. The Psychic Battlefield. New York: St. Martin's, 2000.

Anderson, Intelligencer 11.2, notes that about half this book is devoted to the CIA's Stargate remote viewing project that spent about $20 million from 1972 to 1995. The reviewer is not enamoured of either the concept or the book. Mandelbaum, Intelligencer 12.1, points out that he is "a litigation attorney, not a scientist." One of his goals in his book "was to determine 'by a preponderance of the evidence' whether or not paranormal intelligence was in fact possible.... Using the methods of law -- not science -- I made the determination that it did exist, and was of utility."

He later "emigrated to South Africa.... Recruited to SOE, he went to Angola. There he arranged the capture of a Vichy ship, sabotaged U-Boat fuel supplies and destroyed Nazi sisal stores. Sent to Portugal and Spain, he disrupted wolfram supplies to Germany. He was appointed head of SOE's Russian section."

Kruh, Cryptologia 21.4, notes that this volume brings together the "recollections of more than 30 people who were involved in the varied functions that comprise codebreaking.... These fascinating reminiscences provide a revealing and accurate view of the work" by Central Bureau Brisbane (CBB) and Fleet Radio Unit Melbourne (FRUMEL) personnel.

Fry, I&NS 7.2, concludes that "there is a contribution of significance here to the debate on both the future of security studies and the shape of any new world order."


Mangold, Tom. Cold Warrior: James Jesus Angleton, The CIA's Master Spy Hunter. New York: Simon & Schuster, 1991. New York: Touchstone, 1992. [pb]

According to Cram, most reviewers hailed this book "as a major triumph of research and writing," while "pro-Angleton critics ... declared it inaccurate.... Mangold's conclusion is inescapable: something was seriously wrong with CIA counterintelligence under Angleton.... What Mangold was able to cram into his 403 pages is devastating to Angleton's reputation."

This is a judgment concurred in by John Starnes, Director General of the Canadian RCMP Security Service during the period that is the focus of Mangold's work. In his review in I&NS 7.3, Starnes calls the book "well-written and carefully researched," but notes that Mangold "has almost, but not quite, captured" the "attractive, complex, eccentric, interesting and contradictory character" of Angleton the person.

Braden, Washington Monthly, Jun. 1991, believes that Mangold has done "an extraordinarily diligent job." On the other hand, Surveillant 2.4 notes that critics point to "the one-sided character of the presentation which concentrates on the negative consequences of Angleton's activities." Peake, IJI&C 5.2, sees Cold Warrior as "worthy of thoughtful analysis and reflection." It is a "harsh critique of Angleton ... and the CIA itself." Mangold makes a "strong case for the prosecution -- unaccompanied by a balanced presentation for the defense.... [N]o serious study of counter-intelligence history can ignore it."

For Finder, NYTBR, 30 Jun. 1991, this "important and gripping work," with its focus on the mole hunt of 1963 to 1974, "is not a full-fledged biography." The depiction of Angleton "is far less evenhanded than ... the long chapter ... in Robin Winks' Cloak and Gown, which remains the best overall treatment of the man's career." Treverton, FA (Winter 1992-1993), finds that the author "has interviewed carefully and even-handedly and writes this fascinating story in sturdy prose. Yet the book is a commanding indictment" of Angleton's slip "from caution to obsession."

Robarge, Studies 53.4 (Dec. 2009), says that Mangold's "is still the most factually detailed, thoroughly researched study of Angleton." However, it "does not cover all aspects of Angleton's CIA career. Rather, it is the 'prosecution's brief' against him for the molehunt."
