    eBook american history.co ¸ Donovans Devils Epub µ Donovans Devils Epub / donovans pdf, devils download, Donovans Devils book, Donovans Devils MOBIWilliam Donovan created the idea of a special forcesspy agency similar to ones used by the British and sold the idea to the Roosevelt administration just prior to WWII This organization became the OSS office of strategic services which later became the CIA The group had conflicts with Army and Navy intelligence and what would become special units like the Rangers Even so it played a role in the war This book limits itself to a brief history of the OSS founding and then to a lot of details about operations in the Mediterranean theater in Italy France and the Balkans It is fairly interesting; I know little of these operations but the book has way detail than I needed What is surprising is how often these special ops failed especially early in the war when they were learning the ropes I guess it shouldn't be surprising given the problems of landing agents behind enemy lines linking up with untrained people of uestionable loyalty and avoidin

    eBook american history.co ¸ Donovans Devils Epub µ Donovans Devils Epub / donovans pdf, devils download, Donovans Devils book, Donovans Devils MOBIThis is an interesting read and in many ways a sad one Although the OSS had success and eventually transitioned into the CIA many of the missions resulted in the death of agents and in one case Major William Holohan the death appears to have been a murder by member of his own team for profit The author provides excellent descriptions of the missions and the reader can get anxious about the trials and tribulations of the teams dropped behind enemy lines For those interested in this aspect of World War II or the origins of the Central Intelligence Agency this is a good read

    eBook american history.co ¸ Donovans Devils Epub µ Donovans Devils Epub / donovans pdf, devils download, Donovans Devils book, Donovans Devils MOBIA somewhat interesting account of the action by the OSS commandos It's a bit of a slog to read and the last two chapters needed to be greatly condensed I suspect there are much better accounts of the OSS for those interested The publisher Arcade Publishing did Mr Lulushi no favors in their editing failing to spot a number of errors in phrasing words and techniues things that should have been caught and fixed before a second printing my library copy was a second printing of the bookFor example several times it was stated that the task of the OGs was to secure an objective and wait until they were overrun Being overrun generally means your opponent has reached your position and is b
