Sir:

Captain Paul Robinson has recently been selected to act as control officer for several senior underground agents. He has had success in his current post, where he manages several lower-level cells. This selection is subject to his passing another rigorous background check, his successful promotion to major, and his passing a one month probationary period.

Re: Evaluation of new control officer
Date: 27 March 1943

Sir:

Halfway through Robinson's probationary period, I find him to be an extremely competent officer and an able commander of base personnel. However, Robinson lacks flexibility. His affinity for rules and procedures makes for a difficult relationship with the operatives for which he is responsible. I have counseled him that he must understand that deep-cover operatives must often jettison the rulebook and utilize more creative methodology.

Robinson is a good officer, but if he continues on is present course, I will have no choice but to replace him. We will begin screening potential replacements just in case.

Sir:

Be advised that per your orders and against my better judgment, I have followed Papa Bear's instruction and ordered a bombing run to target point CF-93, despite numerous reports that the only buildings in that area are derelict and there was no independent corroborating report, which the regulations require.

I renew my objection to permitting a deep-cover operative to continue to operate without any administrative oversight.

Re: Progress Report
Date: 17 May 1943

Sir:

During the past month, my operatives have been responsible for eighteen major acts of sabotage, twenty-three lesser acts, supplied the coordinates for seventeen successful bombing runs, and provided countless amounts of other priceless intelligence data. These numbers show a slight improvement from last month.

Furthermore, I am pleased to report that operatives under my command recently captured an officer attached to the German General Staff. This prisoner had access to battle plans, readiness reports, production centers, and the latest supply schedules. Other departments are handling his interrogation.

In addition, I have instructed my people to collect information on German troop movements in their areas, and I have compiled a nearly complete map of enemy forces in western Germany, Belgium, and France. My predecessor neglected to do so.

I hope to continue to provide such information in the future.

Re: Final evaluation of new control officer
Date: 20 May 1943

Sir:

After monitoring Robinson's actions during the past month, I have come to the reluctant conclusion that he lacks the mental flexibility to manage this level of operative.

Operatives recently placed under his supervision are segregated due to their high degree of reliability and talent. Robinson has been unable to avoid micromanaging these agents, despite numerous orders to the contrary.

While the process of approving new officers is onerous, observation and careful inquiries to certain operatives have indicated that failing to replace Robinson would result in a serious degradation of intelligence. The process of approving Robinson's successor should be completed by the end of the week.

Colonel Richard Gordon
