Gritty military and intelligence history, especially World War I and between the world wars

Background Information

"I've discovered a neglected, shadowy dimension of history in intelligence records at the National Archives. I want to make history come alive like Peter Fleming..." [Ian's brother]

As a child during the Cold War, Jamie Bisher cultivated penpals in Russia and other forbidden places, finagled visits to the Soviet Embassy in Washington and saved his meager earnings from after-school jobs to make a pilgrimage to the May Day parade in East Berlin. His rich job experiences--7/11 clerk on the 11pm-7am "robbery shift," leafleteer for a liberal congressman, chauffeur for the Lebanese Embassy, desk clerk at Watergate, "Beltway Bandit" analyst and a long gig on the shadiest side of "human intelligence operations"--belie hard-earned academic credentials: a degree from the United States Air Force Academy, a graduate certificate in linguistics from American University, and a master's degree in international management from the University of Maryland. He works on international projects for a defense electronics firm, sometimes teaches English at nights and is the son of legendary sportswriter Furman Bisher of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

He has published more than 30 non-fiction articles in magazines, journals and newspapers in the U.S., U.K., Canada, Belize, Japan, Russia and Mexico on intelligence history, military and naval history, travel, animals and other topics.
