This is the documentary record of the Agency's early tumultuous years as the first central Defense intelligence organization in United States' history. Inside this book are 104 Department of Defense documents from 1961 to 1965 - some highly classified in their day - telling precisely when, how, why and by whom DIA was established. The story will be of interest to any serious student of the United States intelligence agencies. It provides an understanding of the original mission of the Agency and its continuing importance in a new era of Defense intelligence to policymakers, diplomats, commanders, and law enforcement officials.
