Abstract:

The Intelligence and Security Command dedicated its new headquarters building at Fort Belvoir in honor of Major General Dennis Edward Nolan. This short biography is intended to provide members of the command with an understanding of the contributions MG Nolan made to military intelligence. The story of Dennis E. Nolan, an 1896 West Point graduate and career Army officer, is more than a biography of one man it is also the story of the development of modern military intelligence and the emergence of the United States as a world power. The year 1998 is the 100th anniversary of the outbreak of the Spanish-American War. An important turning point in American history, the Spanish- American War marked the end of Americas inward focus and the beginning of looking outward. From 1898 to the present American interests have spread to the four corners of the earth.
