Book Description

May 1 2005
Intelligence is a key element of operations, enabling commanders to successfully plan and conduct operations. It enables them to win decisive battles and it helps them to identify and attack high value targets. Intelligence is an important part of every military decision. Military intelligence is the knowledge of a possible or actual enemy or area of operation. It encompasses combat intelligence, strategic intelligence, and counterintelligence, and is essential to the preparation and execution of military policies, plans, and operations.

The objective of military intelligence is to minimize the uncertainties of the affects of enemy, weather and terrain on operations. The decisive factor in warfare has often been the utilization of good intelligence. A glimpse of how this has been done in the Canadian Forces is contained in this reference book on the Intelligence Branch history.

3.0 out of 5 stars Extensively Researched July 29 2010
By Jeffrey Swystun TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
The author deserves great credit for his extensively researched series on Canadian Military Intelligence. I have read Volumes 1 & 2 and they ably portray both the maturing and contribution this arm of the services has provided to the country. However, this is not an easy narrative nor a fast-pace spy thriller. It reminds me of a commissioned corporate history so will appeal to quite a narrow audience of academics and former members of the service. By the way, the title is the service's motto.
