Crushing enemy morale was one of the primary missions of the WWII Office of Strategic Services (OSS).

The OSS/MO (morale operations) concocted black propaganda. With a subtle stroke such as adding a forged and downtrodden line to a soldier s postcard, his family could be negatively affected sending a ripple effect through the home front. In her new book OSS Operation Blackmail: One Woman's Covert War against the Imperial Japanese Army, Ann Todd follows Elizabeth "Betty" McIntosh through her OSS training and to the China-Burma-India theatre where she became the active head of MO for the entire region. Join Todd as she explains McIntosh's role as a psychological warrior, how the operations worked in this theatre and how deft strategy led to the production of 1000s of pamphlets and radio scripts, fiendishly clever rumors and a variety of faked Japanese, Burmese, and Chinese newspapers. OSS Operation Black Mail will be available for sale and signing at the event.
