This analytic and historical study provides a revealing look at naval operational intelligence by embracing the fundamental question of what OPINTEL is and how it answers the fundamental question ""Where is the enemy, in what strength, and disposition, and what is he doing right now?"" It is primarily the result of an Operational Intelligence Lessons-Learned Symposium held at the National Maritime Intelligence Training Center in Dam Neck, Virginia, 12-13 September 1998. The participants included senior intelligence professionals whose mandate was to explore the ramifications of the evolution of naval operational intelligence since World War II. Current practices were also explored with inputs from current practitioners as represented by various fleet and shore commands. Additional sources for the study were oral interviews and correspondence with senior members of the intelligence community. The authors have scrupulously taken the work as close to the edge of security classification as is possible to enhance its value without being damaging to national security.

The Admirals' Advantage provides one of the few authoritative looks into Cold War-era intelligence. The authors--both academicians and naval reserve officers--have done a masterful job of maneuvering through the over-classification of this period to give us an interesting and useful account. It should be a textbook for all intelligence-related classes and schools." -- Norman Polmar, author of Project Azorian and The Naval Institute Guide to Ships and Aircraft of the U.S. Fleet, 19th ed. "The Admirals' Advantage provides a remarkable insight into the chronicles of OPINTEL and the impact it had on the ultimate victory of the U.S. and its allies over the Soviet Union and its Warsaw Pact partners during the Cold War. This milestone work constitutes a major addition to the military record of this most dangerous period in world history and should be included in the libraries of all military academies and institutions of higher learning."-- The late Rear Adm. Thomas W. Evans, author and analyst specializing in submarine history and operations
