Most of what we know regarding the Civil War even today pertains to either famous battles - Antietam, Gettysburg, or Averasboro - or famous people - Stuart, Mosby, Grant, or Lee. However, many stories remain untold; shrouded in mystery. This book is an attempt to shed light on the enormous contribution of one such mysterious entity which in innovative ways fought to preserve the constitutional rights of its fellow Southern citizens. This was the Confederate Secret Service Bureau and Signal Corps. Though special operation units and clandestine operations have become the rage the world over, they are nothing new to American history. Long before there were any special operations units such as the Underwater Demolition Teams (UDT), Ranger Battalions, Jedburgh Detachments, or Office of Strategic Services (OSS), there existed a special operations branch which encapsulated the Confederate Secret Service, Secret Navy, and Special and Detached Services and Signal Corps. These three comprised the covert fighting ability of the Confederacy. Of all the other special operations entities that were created to establish 'a better state of the peace' that had previously existed, none other made such a massive contribution to the war effort. This is what this book hopes to acknowledge and elaborate on.
William A. Tidwell establishes the existence of a Confederate Secret Service and clarifies the Confederate decision-making process to show the role played by Jefferson Davis in clandestine operations. While the book focuses on the Confederate Secret Service's involvement with the Lincoln assassination, the information presented has implications for various other aspects of the Civil War. The most thorough description of the Confederate Secret Service to date, April '65 provides previously unknown records and traces the development of Confederate doctrine for the conduct of irregular warfare. In addition it describes Confederate motives and activities associated with the development of a major covert effort to promote the creation of a peace party in the North. It shows in detail how the Confederates planned to attack the military command and control in Washington and how they responded to the situation when the wartime attack evolved into a peacetime assassination. One of the most significant pieces of new information is how the Confederates were successful in influencing the history of the assassination.
Was the Assassination of Abraham Lincoln a Confederate Operation? Conspiracy, terrorism, and obstruction of justice are not unique to recent events, and maneuvering and scheming behind the scenes has a long history. On an April evening, John Wilkes Booth crept into the presidential box at Ford's Theater in Washington, D.C., and shot President Abraham Lincoln. Many have wondered ever since if there was not a wider conspiracy associated with the assassination. Lincoln and Booth: More Light on the Conspiracy takes up these questions, examining the people, issues, and strange happenings related to the assassination and its aftermath. Using the tools of investigative journalism and the latest in scholarly research, H. Donald Winkler describes the events that led to the shooting of the president, including Booth's activities from July 1864 through April 1865, raising questions never before raised and suggesting answers never before considered. Winkler has pulled together relevant, reliable information about the terrorism, intrigue, mysteries, covert actions, betrayals, deceptions, jury tampering, obstruction of justice, subterfuge, execution by trickery, dirty politics, and other shameful acts associated with the assassination. All the controversial issues are considered, including the likely guilt of Samuel Mudd and Mary Surratt, official Confederate involvement, John Surratt's gratuitous reprieve, the veracity of Louis Weichmann, and John S. Mosby's possible involvement. Also discussed are Edwin M. Stanton's motives and decisions related to denying protection to Lincoln on April 14; hurriedly naming and pursuing conspirators; concealing Booth's diary; hanging Mary Surratt while failing topursue John Surratt; hiring Sandford Conover to find witnesses; and collaborating with the Radical Republicans in their efforts to impeach Andrew Johnson. Lincoln and Booth: More Light on the Conspiracy discusses the various possibilities and options on controversial issues and challenges readers to draw their own conclusions.
A combination memoir and combat photography book, Running Recon reflects both the author's experiences in the top-secret Studies and Observation Group (SOG) from April 1969 to April 1970, and the collective experiences of SOG veterans in general.

Magic or spycraft? In 1953, against the backdrop of the Cold War, the CIA initiated a top-secret program, code-named MKULTRA, to counter Soviet mind-control and interrogation techniques. Realizing that clandestine officers might need to covertly deploy newly developed pills, potions, and powders against the adversary, the CIA hired America's most famous magician, John Mulholland, to write two manuals on sleight of hand and undercover communication techniques. In 1973, virtually all documents related to MKULTRA were destroyed. Mulholland's manuals were thought to be among them—until a single surviving copy of each, complete with illustrations, was recently discovered in the agency's archives. The manuals reprinted in this work represent the only known complete copy of Mulholland's instructions for CIA officers on the magician's art of deception and secret communications.
The former Presidential Agent’s Office of Organizational Analysis has been disbanded. Charley Castillo and his colleagues have retired, and the sudden death of the President has brought an adversarial Commander-in-Chief into the Oval Office... But just because Castillo is out of the government doesn’t mean he’s out of business. He still has the skills and the manpower to do what others can’t or won’t do. And his first job is a real killer. A barrel filled with some nightmarishly lethal biohazard material has been shipped to an Army medical lab—material that Castillo and his men were supposed to have destroyed on a mission. Clearly, the message is that more of the deadly material remains. But who has it? And what do they want? With lives at stake—including his own—Castillo knows that he’s not going to like the answers one damn bit...
