9780750918701: Military Intelligence: A History

What is military intelligence? Who collects it, collates it and makes use of the finished product? How are the various services organized? What are the types of Intelligence, and the methods used in their collection? In this volume, these and many other questions are explained as the basis for a further, more detailed, examination of the world of defence Intelligence community. The profusion of stories about Intelligence and counter-Intelligence coups, confessions of former spies, acusations and counter-accusations against the various Intelligence servies of NATO and the former Iron Curtain countries has produced bewilderment for many people. This has been compounded since the end of the Cold War and the collapse of the USSR, by the many new organizations which have emerged. The author discusses all of these in layman's terms, hoping to strip away the confusion surrounding people's perception of the Intelligence services. He describes the growth in British Military Intelligence from Henry VIII's day up to the post-Cold War era and then focuses on the activities and organization of other countries' Intelligence services, such as the CIA, Mossad and the KGB. The final chapter then looks into the future of Intelligence gathering.
