A good Book. Donovan\'s life was so packed with accomplishments, it was hard sometime to keep up with the action. Nevertheless, I very much enjoyed this book. It filled in a lot of holes for me on my understanding of the OSS as well as the birth of the CIA. And once again it confirmed for me what a ruthless man J.Edgar Hoover was. Thank goodness that we don\'t have anyone like him in government any more.
