The Origins of FBI Counterintelligence based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
This book is a wealth of declassified information on the pre-WWII FBI and their efforts to keep America safe from Axis spies bent on causing chaos on the homefront. As a retired Special Agent in counterintelligence Batvinis' knowledge and a storyteller's skill, provides a rich historical narrative that has some eye-opening information. An interesting part of the narrative is how Hoover fought fiercely over the control of counterintelligence, and tells how the agency combined its crime-fighting expertise with its new wiretapping authority to spy on foreign agents. People opposed to the FBI's current war on terror should read this book and imagine what if the FBI was not as proactive. Where would we be today?
former fbi agent raymond j. batvinis has writtion a very fasinating and well documented background of the bureaus long and very successful history of counter intelligence. this book goes back to the early days of pre world war 2 and up the present day and shows that there were alot of enemy spy activties very close to americas shores that threatened harm to our citizens and this intresting publication shows how federal agents are going to show england and they will go to training and to stop terrorism.
