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

In this most recent of the professional texts on combat intelligence, Colonel Heymont has put together an analysis that is a must for reading, study, or reference. The book was translated and published in Moscow in 1963.

This is a review by the Defense Intelligence School.[2]

Author proposes to set forth comprehensively the principles and operations of combat intelligence, including a full explanation of the impact of nuclear weapons, helicopters, electronics, and other aspects of modern warfare. An ambitious effort, but with very few revealing conclusions or new ideas.
