Colonel Allison Ind’s (Army of the United States, retired) A Short History of Espionage, is an abbreviated version of espionage history beginning in antiquity and continuing through the American Civil War, the Spanish American War, World War I, World War II, and through the postwar period to the Bay of Pigs in Cuba. lnd concentrates on appraisals of the methods of modern espionage in England, France, Germany, and the Soviet Union. His assessments of both espionage and counterespionage are vigorously expressed to provide valid analyses and he draws on his experiences as an intelligence specialist with the U.S. Army in the Far East from 1940 to 1961.
Ind produced an expanded version of A Short History of Espionage, the title of this review. This study includes new material dealing with a number of outstanding British and Western European cases.
