The NATO OSINT Handbook was a distilled and refined version of the first official handbook that I did, for the Defense Intelligence Agency.  After doing the NATO OSINT Handbook (100% reduced to 85% after some excellent editing by Capt David Swain and LCdr Andrew Chester), I created the Special Operations Forces OSINT  Handbook in strawman form, for Col Ferd Irizarry, then Commander of the Army’s Civil Affairs Brigade.
