—Winston Churchill

The job of military intelligence is to ameliorate, or avoid altogether, the blunders that so often cause unnecessary loss of life.

The whole concept is very interesting! The aproach on war, and military intelligence is quite well acomplished! I really like the "collage" with the "I" and "spy"!

This looks like it could be the cover of a spy novel! It's very graphic and very compelling.
