Simple Sabotage Field Manual

Read by James Christopher

(4.4 stars; 60 reviews)

Formed during World War II, the United States Office of Strategic Services (OSS), was organized for special operations and intelligence gathering and analysis. Included in its mission was the implementation of, and training of foreign forces in, propaganda, espionage, subversion, and sabotage. After the war, OSS functions were transferred to the newly formed Central Intelligence Agency (CIA).

This "Simple Sabotage Field Manual" was used by OSS agents in training "citizen-saboteurs" in methods for inciting and executing simple sabotage to thwart industry and other vital functions in Axis-occupied areas. (Summary by James Christopher) (0 hr 58 min)

simple sabotage field manual

(5 stars)

The book is interesting from a historical point of view and the reader matched the book and the tone of the text. The reader almost reminded me of a World War Two speaker doing propaganda

Fantastic reader! Easy to listen to, easy to understand.

Verrry Interesting!

Do NOT give this to a grumpy teenager! Some of the information is outdated--fuse boxes and carburetors are not available for sabotage anymore--but it seems like much sabotage is a matter of attitude and awareness. I was impressed with the information in Section 2 for supervisors and office workers on how to slow down work flow. I swear all those strategies are SOP in corporate America... (Title phrase refers to a character from "Laugh In")

Great reader and an interesting history lesson! Great book, Would recommend! I'd imagine many of these tips would work if there was a war in modern times too.

You will swear that your co-workers are following this manual!
