Crazy ideas litter the history of US attempts to “best’ the enemy and prepare
for any eventuality. From the use of animals in bizarre ways to using bombs to
redirect hurricanes. Based on the entertaining book by historian Vince
Houghton of the International Spy Museum these 21 vignettes are funny,
tragic, and eye opening since most were unknown to the public. Much was
learned from these failures so why keep them secret? Let’s pull the curtain
back and share these secrets now revealed. Members should buy the book or
get it from the library. The cost of the book is $14.63.
