With the United States' entry into World War II, President Franklin D. Roosevelt created the first peacetime civilian intelligence agency in 1941-the Office of the Coordinator of Information. This office was designed to organize the activities of several agencies. In 1942, a larger and more diversified agency, the Office of Strategic Services, the forerunner of today's Central Intelligence Agency was created. This recording includes a short lecture on methods of interrogation, treatment of prisoners, understanding German and Japanese culture, procedures for ground forces that capture prisoners, and the use of practice interrogations.
