From dust jacket: The Central Intelligence Agency shows the importance of the agency and its various methods of gathering information. The history of intelligence and William Donovan's mysterious travels before World War II introduce the book and place the CIA in a historical context. Using hundreds of photographs, maps, charts, and interviews -- many published here for the first time -- the history of America's preeminent intelligence agency and its methods of collecting intellegence are chronicled and detailed. It examines the use of intelligence in the New World, early American intelligence history, and Wild Bill Donovan and OSS operations.

Special emphasis is paid to the Directorate of Operations, the arm of the CIA responsible for conducting espionage and covert actions...
