The Confederate Secret Service: An Analysis of the Intelligence Community of the Confederate States of America 1861-1865
This booklet is a report on and an analysis of the Confederate Secret Service. Any errors or misinterpretations of referenced sources are strictly those of the author. The author is an experienced intelligence officer, but he also harbors the caution of a typical intelligence analyst and knows that there is always more to know.
My interest in this topic stems from both my intelligence career and from research of family history/genealogy which begun in 1983. The genealogy reveals that ancestors served in nearly every conflict starting with the American Revolution. That family military tradition continues in the current generation with two sons who are serving as officers of US Marines.
