Brave men in exceptional aircraft risked overflights of "denied territory" to bring back rolls of aerial imagery, but that was only half their task. The personnel of the 67th Recon Tech Squadron finished the work, flawlessly processing the film to preserve its content, and expertly analyzing every inch to extract intelligence on changes to known targets and to discover new threats. Then we had to get that information to strike units and decision-makers quickly and in a form they could use efficiently. This book relies on newly declassified documents and accounts of more than forty people who were there to tell the history of those technicians and that process during critical days in a critical theater of operations.
