Intelligence and Surprise Attack: Failure and Success from Pearl Harbor to 9/11 and Beyond by Erik J. Dahl

Intelligence and Surprise Attack examines why surprise attacks often succeed even though warnings in many cases had been available beforehand. Erik J. Dahl challenges the conventional wisdom about intelligence failure, which holds that attacks succeed because warnings get lost amid noise and intelligence officials lack the imagination to "connect the dots." By comparing intelligence failure to intelligence success, Dahl finds the key to success is the acquisition of precise intelligence combined with the presence of decision makers who are willing to listen to and act on the warnings they receive from their intelligence staff. The book offers a new understanding of cases such as Pearl Harbor, and provides comprehensive analysis of the intelligence picture just before the 9/11 attacks, challenging some of the findings of the 9/11 Commission Report.
