    Hardcover é Double Crossed PDF/EPUB Ü double free, crossed free, Double Crossed MOBIDouble Crossed ReviewThis book traces four different men basically dedicating one chapter of each section to each man The Good Well researched the part about John Birch was interesting as was the small section on the king of Saudia Arabia the famed archeologistspy Nelson Gleuck and the formation of the CIA at the end The Bad The title itself is somewhat misleading Really only Birch and possibly Herman were really missionaries The other two were teachers not missionaries All but Birch were very liberal and were not really interested in spreading the gospel at all in fact believed that it was much better to just give a good education and hope the people would see Christianity was better even though ironically they also said that doctrine didn’t matter Most of the book is boring details about very general operations and letters to their family There is very little action danger or other material of inte

    Hardcover é Double Crossed PDF/EPUB Ü double free, crossed free, Double Crossed MOBII was interested the moment I heard about this book The idea of missionaries turning into spies during WWII was intriguing It was an aspect of the war that has so far been covered up and hiddenThis book focuses on the formation of OSS Office of Strategic Services which was an early version of what is now the CIA and four main missionaries– William Eddy John Birch Stephen Penrose and Steward Herman While some of the book was a slower read and didn’t keep my interest quite as much other parts were faster paced and I didn’t notice turning pages or anything else I learned a lot of things about the war about goings on behind the scenes of different operations and about OSS There were times when reading that I wasn’t sure I fully agreed with the author an

    Hardcover é Double Crossed PDF/EPUB Ü double free, crossed free, Double Crossed MOBIAn intriguing look into the work of missionaries for the US government The Office of Strategic Services predecessor to the CIA working during WW II employed missionaries as spies In the government's view this made sense These missionaries were often very knowledgeable of the cultures and languages of the people among whom they ministered Missionaries were able to move around in the midst of foreign countries involved in the war to

    Hardcover é Double Crossed PDF/EPUB Ü double free, crossed free, Double Crossed MOBIThis was slow reading in the beginning and seemed like a non fiction like novel when you first began However as it progressed it covers some of the little know history of evangelical missionaries who were recruited to spy for the government during and after the WW II It is a very well researched and documented tale of a number of protestant missionaries who worked for the OSS soon after we entered the warOSS is forerunner of the CIA Because many of them were familiar with various areas and knew the language and culture they were perfect for this work It covers the lives of five missionaries but also touches on the work of a priest in Italy and of a rabbi who worked with Muslims undercover in North Africa As it progressed I found it interesting as I have read much about WW II but had no knowledge of these menMany of the assignments were quite dangerous and most of the men stayed in their chosen areas Germany China

    Hardcover é Double Crossed PDF/EPUB Ü double free, crossed free, Double Crossed MOBII believe I read a review of this book in the Washington Post During WWII some Christian missionariesministers decided to work with the USA government the Office of Strategic Services OSS the organization before there was a CIA to fight against the enemy Nazi Germany and Japan The author highlights four men John Birch Stephen Penrose Steward Herman and William Eddy I had heard of John Birch actually I knew about the John Birch Society but not the person of John Birch John Birch was killed in China by Communist forces in 1945 The society used his name because they believed John Birch was the first casualty of the Cold War the fight against communism John Birch was an evangelicalfundamentalist missionary

    Hardcover é Double Crossed PDF/EPUB Ü double free, crossed free, Double Crossed MOBIWhat a history is all about shining some much needed light on the darker side of America's spy business and the use of missionaries and church agencies in the fight against the Axis Powers when America realized it needed information on all the countries involvedAnd no better source than missionaries who spoke the languages knew the geography understood the cultures knew local customs were accustomed to hardship with plenty of contacts For a fledgling spy enterprise what better place to begin?The author examines the lives of four such men their families and associates including one John Birch d 1945 after which the John Birch Society is named though the author makes clear that it's likely the real John Birch would not have approvedThe author takes us through the early post war years into the panicky Cold War days when Communists were under every bed and hiding in every closet and how the OSS became the CIA and the occasional efforts

    Hardcover é Double Crossed PDF/EPUB Ü double free, crossed free, Double Crossed MOBIManages to make the fascinating topic of WW2 spycraft dull and tedious I had difficulty slogging through the names dates and backstories until things sort of picked up about 34 of the way through Obviously spy work isn't like in movies and TV shows but the build up in the first part of the book leads you to expect a little than alleged missionary spies requisitioning supplies and serving as translators Granted there are some very interesting characters and some curious behind the scenes arrangements that brought us to the modern day CIAThat said the involvement of missionaries in spying for the United States is in most cases hardly something to celebrate Wartime ethics often view the ends as justifying the means and this was certainly the philosophy of the OSS To involve missionaries in this is to require compromise Further this history has led to the suspici

    Hardcover é Double Crossed PDF/EPUB Ü double free, crossed free, Double Crossed MOBIAs a former missionary who has been accused of being a spy for the CIA I found this book intriguing when I saw it in our library's collection Though I didn't always agree with Matthew Sutton's assessment of missionaries or Christian denominations I did find the book interesting in how America's OSS sought to use the obvious expertise of foreign

    Hardcover é Double Crossed PDF/EPUB Ü double free, crossed free, Double Crossed MOBII was really looking forward to reading this book Since I have read numerous books on the OSS in the past I was intrigued to find out that missionaries had helped the war effort for the Allies None of the previous works ever mentioned this nugget of information Unfortunately I struggled with this book I found the writing to be very dry and it just didn't keep my interest Also I only got through one or two chapters before I decided to call it quits It's hard to stick with something if it doesn't resonate
