Rex Bradford has been good enough to post information about Shadow Warfare on the Mary Ferrell Foundation web site. In particular, MFF – at the link below – now provides a link to the recent hour long interview with Alan Dale but Rex has also linked in the actual introduction to Shadow Warfare. If you would like to get a bit of feel as to how the book reads, you might start there.
The introduction positions covert action and undeclared warfare in the context of a host of secret activities which began during the Cold War and which evolved into at least some of the “gray warfare” activities that are a part of the current war on terror.
If you have any questions at this point feel free to ask them via this blog, in the interim, I’m going to begin posting a variety of comments from some new work I’m doing which has to do with the other side of the coin – threats, warnings and responses during major national security crises and how well the plans to deal with them played out in real life. For those who have followed this blog, this is a much broader research into the sort of national security response we find occurring following President Kennedy’s assassination. Its always very educational to compare what should have happened to what did – and its pretty clear that the events of November 22, 1963 should have led to a major study and revision to a series of plans having to do with “decapitation” of the national command authority. So far, no sign that happened.
