Synopsis: Book by Troy, Thomas F.

From the Publisher: This book was published in a very limited edition by the Cental Intelligence Agency's Center for the Study of Intelligence

This hefty tome by a veteran CIA official will probably remain the definitive account of its subject. Going back to the 1920s, paying careful attention to the founding of the Office of Strategic Services during World War II, and culminating with the creation of the CIA by Executive Order in 1947, the author covers all feasible sources in his effort to delineate the climate of opinion in Washington which, very gradually, led to the generally conceded need for an American intelligence-gathering headquarters. His overriding thesis is that the CIA's factual and spiritual father was the late Major General William J. Donovan, wartime chief of the OSS-a thesis not as universally held as some might think. There are appendices, figures, and illustrations galore, as well as extensive annotation and a full bibliography of documentary and human sources. The index is a good one. The text reads smoothly.... The work has now been declassified and re-edited in one massive volume, with a minimum of mandated deletions.... The tone is neither aggressive nor defensive, but scholarly. - Baltimore Sun
