Author "has had the advantage of working inside Germany as a member of the dreaded Gestapo, and he has been fortunate enough to get a real insight into the past actions and future plans of Hitler and his advisers. Will serve as a warning to those who are still inclined to underrate the determination and unscrupulous power of present-day Nazi Germany. Throws light on many hitherto unexplained actions and motives which have led to the present world-wide conflict." - dust jacket. "I left the Gestapo in 1938 and have lived since then the life of a refugee travelling restlessly from one country to another; but my earlier connections with the leading personalities in every country under the direct or indirect influence of Germany gave me the opportunity to collect references and reliable data which are already referring to facts which happened since I left the Gestapo. The overwhelming part of the material in the present book, however, gives a true account of my personal experiences." - Introduction.

By McGehee, Ralph

Australia: Ocean Press. Paperback. 1876175192 [14], 231 pages. Footnotes. Glossary. Index. "The CIA is not now nor has it ever been a central intelligence agency. It is the covert action arm of the president's foreign policy advisers. In that capacity it overthrows or supports foreign governments while reporting 'intelligence' justifying those activities. It shapes its intelligence to support presidential policy. Disinformation is a large part of its covert action responsibility, and the American people are the primary target of its lies." - Ralph McGehee. "McGehee spent 25 years in the CIA from 1952-77. He entered a super-patriot at the height of the Cold War; he left disillusioned and shattered by what he had seen and learned, especially in Vietnam where he saw a tragic and senseless war develop." - back cover.
