Mauch, Christof. Tr., Jeremiah Riemer. The Shadow War Against Hitler: The Covert Operations of America's Wartime Secret Intelligence Service. New York: Columbia University Press, 2003.

Kirkus Reviews, 1 Mar. 2003, finds this to be "[a] careful study that draws heavily on declassified archives"; it presents "illuminating research on the WWII era and modern military intelligence." The author concludes that "the OSS contributed materially to the Allied cause ... by, among other things, targeting and exploiting weak points in the German economy, identifying bombing targets, disrupting civilian and military morale, and spreading misinformation that helped pin down Wehrmacht and SS units that might otherwise have gone into battle against the Allies."

For Kollander, H-German, H-Net Reviews, Mar. 2006 [], the author has "produced a work that skillfully illuminates the history of the ... OSS.... Although the OSS was handicapped by its haphazard organization and by the fact that it was often ignored by the President, it[s] ... operations helped to shorten the war in Europe.... This exhaustively researched book ... is as much a history of the origins of the CIA as it is a history of secret operations against Hitler."

The problem "is whether an organization like CIA can operate in American society without being so open as to be professionally ineffective, or so secret as to be politically unacceptable."


Mawby, Spencer. "The Clandestine Defence of Empire: British Special Operations in Yemen, 1951-64." Intelligence and National Security 17, no. 3 (Autumn 2002): 105-130.

The author seeks "to illustrate the willingness" of the administrations of Eden, Macmillan, and Douglas-Home "to authorize special operations in order to protect Britain's remaining overseas interests. Small-scale clandestine operations were a useful weapon given the continuing problems of international disapproval and imperial overstretch." For example, the policy of secretly sponsoring frontier raids in Yemen "combined practicality and deniability."

"Remote medical diagnosis is defined as the identification of the illnesses affecting a person without the benefit of a formal medical examination." In the broader sense, it "means the identification of the illnesses afflicting a person by a physician who has not himself fully examined the patient." The authors provide summaries of CIA medical diagnoses of French President Georges Pompidou, Algerian President Houari Boumediene, Soviet Premier Leonid Brezhnev, and Israeli Prime Minister Menahem Begin.

A Boeing subsidiary called Jeppesen International Trip Planning, based in San Jose, California, handles "many of the logistical and navigational details for the CIA's "secret 'extraordinary rendition' flights for terrorism suspects." These activities include "flight plans, clearance to fly over other countries, hotel reservations, and ground-crew arrangements."

Nautical Brass Bibliography points out that while this work is "[p]rimarily of historical significance," it "may have been the first to point out that Polish contributions to breaking Enigma were vastly understated by Bertrand and Winterbotham."

Mayhew, Christopher. A War of Words: A Cold War Witness. London: Tauris, 1998.

Shaw, Journal of Cold War Studies 3.3 (Fall 2001), notes that the author "was the driving force behind the establishment of the Information Research Department (IRD) at the British Foreign Office in 1948." Mayhew's "memoir provides useful information on how bodies such as the British Council and its offshoot, the Soviet Relations Committee, used 'friendship' as a political weapon behind the Iron Curtain." Nevertheless, he "adds little of any consequence to the findings hitherto reached by scholars in relation to either the IRD specifically or British Cold War propaganda policy generally."
