For many years, the efficiency of America’s intelligence agencies has been under attack. Technology has brought constant changes in how these agencies operate. Electronics have worked magic; “The FBI: The Way It Was” is a compilation of fifty cases worked under Director J. Edgar Hoover. The criminals' names, and locations of the events, have been changed to protect the guilty as well as the innocent. However, these are authentic stories as experienced by retired agent Hub Broyles, who reveals the real Mr. Hoover.

  The age of innocence , 06/11/2006
Reviewer: jacquline broyles
My father wrote this particular novel which is an ODE to the best generation of our times: Where men still polished their shoes, wore hats, went to church, and treated women with respect. It was a time before cynicism, the politcal underminings of Nixon, Vietnam and Watergate. It was when the F.B.I was respected although as some have argued made some errors on privavcy issues, which has been debated endlessly,it was still respected. This book reveals the best of men and women who wanted to serve their country and society at large with dignity and class. I was a fortunate child to hear my father's exciting tales and he allowed me debate issues of policy while appreciating the core values of his era--- WWII, and hard work. Of course, this book is not Bob Woodward; however, it reveals a far deeper truth about how different society views government entities, in addition to be a fun book to read.

  Names changed to protect the guilty , 11/29/2010
Reviewer: Debbie Broyles
This book shows the reader what I only found out as an adult...what the life of the average G-Man was really like. From a time when family life consisted of many things including a daughter being Daddy's girl, I find myself still in awe. If you appreciate a very well told story - you will enjoy my Dad's book.
