This chapter examines Dai Li's rise in the intelligence services of the National Revolutionary Army of China. After serving under the command of Hu Zongnan, Dai Li was later appointed to become head of a special communications and intelligence unit that was set up in January 1928 at the instruction of Chiang Kai-shek. This chapter discusses Dai Li's relationship with Deng Wenyi and his role in strengthening Chiang Kai-shek's in-formal secret service organization by establishing a Special Services Department. It also highlights the appointment of Dai Li as head of the intelligence or espionage divisions where he was given special authority to train backbone cadres for special services work.
