    2. Very intriguing individual I was fascinated by his exploits when he was younger and the operations the OSS was able to pull off The number of well known people with whom he crossed paths was also interesting Truman in WWI and Ian Fleming.


    3. The definitive book on the founder of the OSS forerunner of the CIA Anthony Cave Brown s research is always exhaustive.
