AMERICAN WAR CASUALTIES: LISTS AND STATISTICS

Comprehensive data on U.S. military deaths from the
Revolutionary War and the War of 1812 through Operation Iraqi
Freedom were presented in a recently updated report from the
Congressional Research Service.

"This report is written in response to numerous requests for war
casualty statistics and lists of war dead. It provides tables,
compiled by sources at the Department of Defense (DOD),
indicating the number of casualties among American military
personnel serving in principal wars and combat actions."

For the more recent military actions beginning with the Korean
War, information on specific cause of death and demographic data
are provided.

The Congressional Research Service does not make its
publications directly available to the public. A copy of the
report was obtained by Secrecy News.

Statistics," updated June 29, 2007:

JEFF RICHELSON'S U.S. INTELLIGENCE COMMUNITY

For decades now "The U.S. Intelligence Community" by Jeffrey T.
Richelson has been the best one-volume account of the structure
and operation of the far-flung U.S. intelligence bureaucracy.
The fifth edition has just been published.

When I encounter an unfamiliar intelligence term, an odd acronym
or a reference to an obscure office somewhere in the bowels of
U.S. intelligence, I find that Richelson's book more often than
not -- more often than Google -- provides the explanation and
the needed background, typically with a footnote to an official
source.

The latest edition includes new material on homeland security
intelligence, detainee interrogation, and other post-9/11
developments.

"The U.S. Intelligence Community" by Jeffrey T. Richelson, 5th
edition, is published by Westview Press.
