Reviewed by Paul W. Blackstock and Frank L. Schaf[1]

In this book the astute chronicler of intelligence history sounds the warning of clandestine infiltration of the United States by foreign powers and the woeful state of U.S. counterintelligence to meet this threat. He elaborates on the organizations of the Germans, Japanese, and Italians that were intruding in the United States and its Latin American neighbors to conduct espionage and sabotage. An excellent review of intelligence against the United States in the immediate pre-World War II period.
