Welcome to War and Tactics!    War and Tactics Forum is currently undergoing some modifications that might disable features you are used to. This is unabvoidable as we have to update the forum engine to a new structure that is incompatible with many of the features we had used so far. The good news: WaT will be more secure and stable, and most of the features we uninstalled will be a natural part of the new structure anyway. For the rest we will be looking for solutions.

Roaming the CIA pages always provides something interesting, in this case I found a list of documents that throw a light on the expionage methods in WWI as employed by the US Office of Naval Intelligence

The documents (two written in French) detail e.g. how Tatoos can be made visible (or your own invisible), how the Germans made invisible ink, how to make your own, or how to open sealed letters without getting found out.

Because of "recent" advancements in technology (according to CIA Director Panetta) the CIA felt it was finally ok to declassify those documents after almost 100 years, they were up to now the oldest classified stuff the agency held, as Intelligence bureaucrats believed for decades that these long outmoded tools of the spy trade needed to be kept out of the public purview. One of them carries a stamp from 1978 marking it “EXEMPT from automatic declassification.” The one with the invisible tattoos has a different non-disclose stamp from 1989.
