The Book of Enoch by Enoch , Paperback Save on Nonfiction Trending price is based on prices over last 90 days. The product of several authors and years of research through scattered intelligence records, the official CIC history is the most authoritative account of the CIC's wartime and peacetime activities. These reports are located at the National Archives and at the Pentagon Library. In addition to the lineage and honors statements of the current Regular Army, Army National Guard, and Army Reserve military intelligence units, the book contains an excellent history of Army intelligence efforts and organizations from the Army's first days until the late s.
The book also contains an extensive bibliography of open source literature dealing with intelligence matters. Published works that deal specifically with the CIC are rare.
Drawn primarily from the official CIC history, the authors added some material to the basic story primarily on postwar CIC operations in Europe as well as photographs. Otherwise, researchers faces a dearth of new literature on the overall history of the CIC. Perhaps the most interesting of the books on the CIC are those written by the veterans themselves.
Melchoir describes in vivid detail his wartime activities and the people he encountered along the way. The nuances of World War II counter- intelligence are readily apparent in these memoirs. Although Colonel then Major Milano was not a member of the th CIC Detachment and had not served in CIC during the war, he was responsible for the unit's activities from until The CIC expanded this escape route to take these same people from Austria to Italian ports, sending them to safety in South America with false identities paid for by the Army. Writing decades after the events he recounts, Milano shows that real people were forced to make real life decisions in a time of crisis.
Some decisions were right, and some proved to be wrong. Milano is quick to note that the rat line in Austria had a specific objective that became subverted after his return to the United States in More importantly, Milano, after many years of silence, is a key eyewitness to these Cold War intelligence activities. The arrest and deportation of former German SS officer Klaus Barbie from Bolivia to France in raised questions as to how the "Butcher of Lyon" escaped justice for so many years. The news of Barbie's arrest and his image on American television led to his recognition by one of his former CIC handlers.
The news rocked the world, resulting in a major Department of Justice DOJ investigation in which the United States government apologized to the French government for its role in sheltering the German war criminal. Like Milano, Dabringhaus recalled his CIC role years afterwards, colored by the knowledge that his actions had affected history for better or worse.
By , after the Communist coup in Czechoslovakia and at the time of the Berlin Airlift, it had become evident that a strong military response was needed to back up American political determination to stop any other European countries falling to communism. Their time was dominated by much more serious matters and conditioned by the situation they found when they arrived. Doyle, Robert C. Our Stores. Raymond W.
While Allan A. The Verbelen Report covered in detail the th CIC Detachment's mission and organizational structure in Austria and how it recruited informants during the early Cold War. CIC Records From its formation in until its consolidation in , the Counter Intelligence Corps produced untold numbers of pages of reports and other correspondence. Today, this documentary record is scattered throughout classified and declassified holdings in numerous agencies of the Federal Government. Researchers, however, should be aware that many CIC records remain in the possession of other US government agencies, primarily those in the Intelligence Community.
Likewise, researchers should consider that other repositories of unofficial records, such as the U. A partial listing. It should be understood that searching for CIC records is a hit-or-miss process. Instead, CIC material can be found in numerous record groups without any sense of order. The Records of the U.
Army Intelligence Command , in RG , include a large collection of Counter Intelligence Corps material, including the official history and information on various CIC detachments. RG contains both classified and declassified material. NARA has some 60 million pages of Army material that need to be reviewed under the year declassification order.
Consequently, it is impossible to tell when all of the CIC material will be available to researchers. Some of this material is already declassified while other dossiers are currently being reviewed. Many of these dossiers were opened by CIC. Meade, Maryland, is the controlling agency for all intelligence records compiled by the US Army in support of intelligence and counterintelligence activities.
