Details of the book
OSS Operation Black Mail: One Woman's Covert War Against the Imperial Japanese Army

OSS Operation Black Mail is the story of a remarkable woman who fought World War II on the front lines of psychological warfare. Elizabeth �Betty� P. McIntosh spent eighteen months serving in the Office of Strategic Services in what has been called the �forgotten theater,� China-Burma-India, where she met and worked with characters as varied as Julia Child and Ho Chi Minh.

The process was opaque on both ends: the origin of a rumor or radio broadcast obscured, the target elusive. For Betty and her friends, time on the �front lines� of psychological warfare in China-Burma-India rushed by in a cascade of creativity and innovation, played out on a stage where a colonial world
