Bermudez on the DPRK’s Reconnaissance Bureau

Joseph Bermudez, military analyst for Jane’s Intelligence Review and author of The Armed Forces of North Korea has published two articles on the DPRK’s intelligence and security services.

The first article is called “A New Emphasis on Operations Against South Korea” and it is available from 38 North (U.S.-Korea Institute at SAIS, Johns Hopkins University, June 11, 2010). Download it here (PDF).

The second article is in KPA Journal Vol. 1, No. 5: “DPRK Intelligence Services 1967-1971, Part 2.” Download it here (PDF).

A few days ago a reader of this site identified the location of what is likely the 2nd Bureau of the reorganized Reconnaissance General Bureau. See it here.
