USMLM -Demystifying the Premiere HUMINT Collection Unit of the Cold War
In March 1947 the Huebner-Malinin Agreement established the United States Military Liaison Mission located in Potsdam, East Germany. Terms of the agreement authorized accredited members the right to travel throughout the Soviet-occupied zone without escort except for “places of disposition of military units”. USMLM quickly became an overt intelligence collection (HUMINT) unit that provided the United States with ‘eyes and boots on the ground’ to monitor the threat posed by the Soviet Military machine. USMLM includes 2 feature presentations.
The first segment, ‘In Plain Sight’ documents the historical aspects of USMLM with once classified photographs and video. The second feature, entitled ‘On Tour: In Our Own Words’ captures the essence of experiences shared by brave and talented Tour Officers and Tour NCO’s who risked their lives performing classified duties behind the Iron Curtain, as told by those who were there.
Produced by former USMLM Tour NCO David Perk, this commemorative DVD set has been two years in the making. Anyone interested in the history of the Cold War or espionage should find this DVD fascinating. Runtime approximately 2 hours.
“On Tour offers invaluable oral history and personal stories about the most unique U.S. overt spy organization of the Cold War, The United States Military Liaison Mission” (USMLM).
