Espionage Manuals
Most modern books on spying are very general in nature, and do
not tell the truth. In a way they have betrayed those people
interested in espionage because they leave out a lot of material
that would be useful to a true student of espionage.

QuikManeuvers has decided to remedy that deficit.

We have commissioned a series of Espionage Manuals,
highlighting little known facts and processes regarding the art of
spying. A person who reads the entire series will be more
knowledgeable about spying than any agency analyst.

1. What do you see? ... describe the scene.

2. How many vehicles in the convoy?
3. How much tonnage are they carrying?

4. How long is the convoy?

5. What size unit could be supplied by this one convoy for one day?

6. What type of terrain is this?

7. Evaluate the man-made elements in regards to military
8. What else do you notice that might be of intelligence value?
The contest was won by Mr. Robert Noles.

When asked about his
background and interest in
espionage, his responses:

No formal intelligence experience or training – I’ve learned the hard way to
pay close attention to my surroundings and look for the thing or things that
are out of place.
My interest in intelligence and combat tactics is personal knowledge and
survival – being the best I can be to take whatever comes my way.
Areas of interest for intelligence are tradecraft and asset development and
for combat tactics are learning standard notations for forces and using
maneuver effectively.

"I am not by training or experience an intelligence professional nor do I have
a military background, beyond growing up a “military brat”. I do read a great
number of military history books as well as espionage/intelligence novels,
both historical and fictional. I work in the business world and through my
studies have adopted the Japanese mindset that “Business is War”. The
saying “It isn’t what you know, it’s who you know” is sometimes accurate, but
should be more appropriately stated “It isn’t who you know, but what you
know about who you know”. In actual combat as in business, intelligence is
critical to making decisions."

His Winning Answers
Mr. Noles' entry was superior
to entries by professional
military and espionage personnel.
The image shows a suburban to rural area near either a river tributary
or a canal – first impulse says canal due to straight, even banks.
Count is 66 vehicles X 4000 lb ea (2 tons) = 264,000 pounds.
Convoy length 66 vehicles X 20’ per truck = 1,320 feet plus travel
distance between vehicles – total length is at or in excess of one
half mile.
This convoy could supply a reinforced brigade for a day.
The terrain, over all, appears flat. It borders on a wooded area which
suggests that it has been cleared for farming initially and is now also
residential – with some farm aspects still remaining.
The large open fields would be difficult to defend or cross without
being detected. The house or structure closest to the waters edge has
a readily defended “funnel” leading from the bank up toward the house
with other access impeded by what appears to be a wall. The bridge
appears to be heavily constructed, possibly to allow passage of heavy
equipment. The other home and structure appears to be less readily
defended and could invite intruders due to the large area of trees (an
orchard, perhaps) that adjoins the lot. The vehicles in the convoy have
done little to conceal themselves and with such a large number of them
parked close together could easily be sabotaged by a group of just a
few to one person.
