Library Journal “Woods has crafted an excellent biography based on the usual primary sources and buttressed by interviews with Colby's family and associates.... Well written and researched, this solid biography by an established historian is worthy of recommendation to all interested readers.”

American History “Colby was a man nobody, not even his wives and children, really knew. A warrior who survived World War II battlefields to fight the Cold War and mastermind ‘pacification' in Vietnam, eventually becoming CIA chief, he mysteriously disappeared after stepping down. Thorough, revealing and rewarding.”

Hugh Wilford, author of The Mighty Wurlitzer “Randall Woods has turned his formidable skills as a biographer to one of the most controversial and enigmatic personalities of the Cold War. The result is a prodigiously researched, richly revealing portrayal of William Colby's life and times in all their contradictions: political, personal, and moral.”
