"OSS Operation Black Mail is the story of a remarkable woman who fought World War II on the front lines of psychological warfare. Elizabeth P.

Betty Macintosh, expert forgers worked for the American Office of Strategic Services (OSS) in the Pacific during World War II. She used her journalist background to produce fake documents and radio broadcasts meant to demoralize Japanese soldiers. Fluent in Japanese she was able to construct orders encouraging Japanese soldiers to surrender. She create falsified American soldier complaints on spending a day more than two years roughing it in jungle with their unlimited supplies, medical attention, rations and used the complaint to compare the spoilt behavior to the true Japanese heroes continuing the fight despite their miserable conditions. She created further misinformation through a mystics’ prediction that something terrible would happen to Japan; that one came true, they lost the war. This biography covers Betty’s life after war when she went to work for the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) where she continues her intelligence work until her retirement in 1973. This is an interesting book at an area not often covered in history books. Extensive notes, bibliography, and index are provided.
