Agency PageGeographic Intelligence
Geographic Intelligence, K. C. Duncan. Geographic intelligence is one of the oldest forms of military intelligence, and one of the most important. From earliest times, when man first conspired against man, through ancient history and medieval conflict to the most recent wars of our own time, an accurate knowledge and appreciation of geographical factors has been an essential part of strategy and tactics.

The other was one of the topdrawer Czechoslovak military intelligence officers. As a young man, long before World War II, he had studied intensively the unchanging axioms of espionage, and was thoroughly versed in these fundamentals:Identify the agent. Don't do clandestine work with parties unknown ...
