The United States' Global War on Terrorism is in its sixth year with no end in sight. Intelligence-gathering is crucial to the successful prosecution of this struggle. These days, though, the mere mentioning of detention and interrogation evokes scandalous and degrading images. So we have the dilemma of determining how the United States can successfully obtain necessary information from a foreign and hostile enemy without alienating its own citizenry and the international community. Part of the resolution to that dilemma may lie right here. In his graphic account of Camp Tracy, US Army Major Alexander D. Corbin looks back at a time when the United States fought and won against an enemy that was profoundly different from Americans in appearance, culture, and religion. His in-depth analysis illustrates many parallels between this past enemy and today's adversaries. It argues convincingly that the successful tactics and techniques of the past can still be applied today and in the future.
