Realistic on military intelligence,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Intelligence in War: Knowledge of the Enemy from Napoleon to Al-Qaeda (Audio Cassette)
After listening to this audiobook, I began to appreciate the tendency to have unrealistic expectations of military intelligence. While it's true that many great historical battles were won in large part due to superior intelligence, most of the time nobody has much of an intelligence edge. Further, even when there is timely and valuable information, it is often made available within a set of mainly inaccurate data.
