The Admiral’s Advantage by Christopher Ford and David Rosenberg . Written by Naval Intelligence (reserve) veterans, this book is an in depth look at what US Navy “OPINTEL” is, how it developed and its critical role in the Cold War. This book focuses on the development of the OSIS system and how Naval Intelligence used deep penetration and all source analysis to help drive the creation of the 1980’s Maritime Strategy and provide global surveillance and tracking of the Soviet Navy’s strategic threat from nuclear ballistic missile submarines. An exceptionally well written book by authors who had full access to Navy sources and a practitioner’s understanding and feel for the craft of Naval Intelligence.
