- Spycraft & Counter Terrorism
Ultimate Spy Book by Melton, Colby & Kolugin
Historian H. Keith Melton is a specialist in 20th-century espionage;
he's also quite a fan of espionage gadgetry. Both interests make
strong showings in this heavily illustrated glimpse into the shadowy
world of modern spying. Melton examines the role of clandestine
intelligence in revolutionary Russia and Nazi Germany, analyzes
modern spy rings, and profiles a number of important figures in
the demimonde of spooks, among them British code breaker Alan
Turing and Yugoslav double agent Dusan Popov. He also showcases
some astonishing hardware, ranging from suitcase radios to shirt
button microphones and mechanical pencil pistols.
Counter-Terrorism Handbook : Tactics, Procedures, and Techniques
by Frank Bolzstols (Hardcover)
The Counter-Terrorism Handbook guides law enforcement as well
as industrial and private security personnel through terrorism
situations or potential threats such as bomb threats, hostage
situations, kidnapping, and negotiations. Info grouped by chronological
sequence: pre-incident- the background, planning, and preparation
in anticipation of such episodes; incident-terrorist situations
such as kidnapping, bombing, and hostage taking as they unfold;
and post-incident-the handling of terrorist incidents once they
have been completed, including the ranking officers' roles in
supervising police response.

and Mata Hari.
Three Covert Ops instructors voted for their choices for the
best and worst action adventure movies.
AND THE WINNERS ARE:
Day of the Jackal
Starring Edward Fox - This is the original, not the awful
remake with Bruce Willis VHS
Starring Robert DeNiro - Good tactics, great driving,
fewer blatant mistakes than most movies
and Present Danger
Starring Harrison Ford - Pay particular attention to the
vehicle ambush and assassination scene. Also the sniper training.
Starring Michael Caine - Some of the best intelligence
tradecraft on film.
Starring George Clooney - Good overall tactics, realistic
attitudes, good driving until the end of the scene.
Spy Who Came In from the Cold
Starring Richard Burton - The all time classic of intelligence
Russia with Love
Starring Sean Connery - The last James Bond movie before
he became a super hero.
Starring Gene Hackman - Worth seeing just for the incredible
driving scene, also shots of the Marseille waterfront
Starring Gene Hackman - In the opening scene he is a member
of Dennis' and Nick's old unit in Berlin (COVERT OPS instructors).
Starring Gene Hackman (notice a trend here?) - Captures
the Special Forces experience as good as any movie
Starring Mel Gibson - Stupid plot about drugs, but captures
the silly side of the Southeast Asian experience
Starring Steve McQueen - This classic set the standard
for action driving scenes
AND THE LOSERS ARE: (Watch
to see how not to do things!):
Starring Sylvester Stallone - The silliest movie about terrorism
Starring Wesley Snipes - Frequent teaching point on how not to
handle a hijacking situation
Dog Day Afternoon starring Al Pacino - Actually a good movie
about how the police totally mishandled a hostage situation
Day of the Jackal
Starring Bruce Willis - How to take a classic and turn it into
an exercise in foolishness
And... Any movie with Steven Seagal, any one of the Rambo trilogy
and old reruns of the A-Team - need we say more?
