SPIES FOR NIMITZ:
Joint Military Intelligence in the Pacific War |
by Jeffrey M. Moore (Foreword by Brig. Gen. Mike Ennis, USMC).
Publisher: Naval Institute
Publish Date: 2004
Edition: First Edition
Description: 336 PAGES. 35 MAPS. 13 ILLUSTRATIONS. NOTES. BIBLIOGRAPHY. INDEX.. In this book Jeffrey Moore profiles the history and select operations of America’s first effective, all source, joint military intelligence agency. Known as JICPOA for Joint Intelligence Center, Pacific Ocean Areas, the agency’s nearly two thousand specialists are credited with giving Admiral Nimitz the intelligence he needed to win the Pacific War. Moore explains how JICPOA evolved and reveals some new facts about the war as he assesses the impact of intelligence on eight amphibious campaigns in the islands of the Central Pacific. He also demonstrates timeless intelligence lessons, faulty versus effective intelligence techniques, and intelligence-operational planning integration—subjects that continue to be pertinent to today’s military operations, including the war on terror.
