Spycraft: A Conversation with Author Robert Wallace
Join the Chair and President of the National Archives Foundation, Governor James J. Blanchard in conversation with author Robert Wallace. Wallace, a retired senior intelligence officer, is the author of five books on American intelligence history. His perspective on spying from the Revolutionary War to the 21st century, reveals the often-overlooked role of advanced technology in agent operations and the surprising places, people, and special “gadgets” at the heart of clandestine operations.
His first book, Nine from the Ninth, is a memoir of his 1969 assignment to Company E, 75th Infantry (Rangers) Long Range Reconnaissance Patrol company in Vietnam. This was followed by SPYCRAFT: The Secret History of the CIA Spytechs from Communism to al-Qaeda, The Official CIA Manual of Trickery and Deception and most recently a three-book Spy Sites series describing two centuries of spying in Washington, New York, and Philadelphia.
