Comparing the collection of intelligence over two hundred years is a daunting task, but Keegan shows thru concrete examples how intelligence gathering has changed, how it failed and succeeded thru the sweep of years.

Why I started this book: We've all heard that joke that the biggest oxymoron is military intelligence, so I was interested in learning more about gathering secrets of the enemy.

Why I finished it: Fascinating case studies, it's always interesting to know who knew what when.
