Association of Former Intelligence Officers

SISTERHOOD OF SPIES: The Women of the OSS, by AFIO member and OSS veteran, Elizabeth McIntosh (Naval Inst Press, 1998). Ms McIntosh's new book was reviewed by (novelist) Donald Westlake in the 5/31 NY Times. Westlake, who liked the book, more or less, lacks as far as we know any qualifications in the areas of intelligence, OSS, or World War II history. Watch for a much more thorough review in the September issue of AFIO's "Intelligencer" newsletter by former AFIO President John Waller who has written extensively about intelligence operations in WW2 and who is himself a veteran of the OSS and CIA.
