The men and women of the Central Intelligence Agency, and their allied foreign national agents, courageously carry out their missions in hostile environments around the globe. From the frozen killing grounds of the Korean War to the bloody siege at Dien Bien Phu, to missions above the Arctic Circle and on the bottom of the Pacific Ocean, and in the capitals and danger zones around the world, these unsung heroes perform countless land, sea and air missions, usually without public knowledge or gratitude.
This collection of original paintings, initially funded by private citizens and corporations depicts actual declassified CIA missions.
Each historical depiction was exhaustively researched and recreated by world class military and aviation artists such as Dru Blair, James Dietz, Jeff Bass, Keith Woodcock, Stuart Brown, Gareth Hector and others. Unique calendar bonus features include photos of points of interest at the headquarters, artist sketches and color studies, declassified documents, photographs of mission participants and more. SECRET OPS OF THE CIA is a history book disguised as a wall calendar. The artwork is on permanent display at the CIA headquarters in McLean, Virginia.
