A North Africa Story: The Anthropologist as OSS Agent, 1941-1943

By Carleton S. Coon
Gambit Press, 1980

Carleton Coon, the Harvard anthropologist, was an OSS cloak-and-dagger man in North Africa during World War II. Immediately after the events he dictated his recollections, here printed. The material is rough, sometimes confusing, and yet interesting as a picture of the romantic and unconventional character of the OSS.
