About Simple Sabotage:
The Simple Sabotage Field Manual, a classified document issued by the OSS (the CIA’s predecessor) at the height of WWII, detailed acts of sabotage intended to disrupt institutions behind enemy lines. Within its pages were eight methods of sabotage designed to thwart the internal processes of organizations. Inspired by this manual, the recently published book, Simple Sabotage, provides methods for detecting and rooting out these behaviors.
