I have to say I'm a sucker for this kind of movies and books. Curious now to read Jon Ronson's book. I have read about Lansdale and his psi-ops, along with other attempts at unconventional warfare, but the idea of a "psychic footsoldier" was new to me. I see now that even this has some credibility, as there were indeed psychic spies and a First Earth Battalion Operations Manual. Fact can indeed be stranger than fiction.
