What changed in Malaya "was the realization that Special Branch should be the principal police agency for the gathering and collation of security and political intelligence... [T]he implementation of a rigid structure allowed the flow of intelligence to be shared and coordinated at all levels."


Sinclair, Robert. "One Intelligence Analyst Remembers Another: A Review of Who the Hell Are We Fighting? The Story of Sam Adams and the Vietnam Intelligence Wars." Studies in Intelligence 50, no. 4 (2006): 1-9.

While this is a review article, veteran analyst Sinclair also provides an interesting view of the order-of-battle controversy and the dilemmas associated with the Vietnam war. He makes the point that "intelligence was only a peripheral player in the policy debates. The focus was on what our side should do, not the capabilities or intentions of the other side."
