Indiana Jones Wiki

The Office of Strategic Services (OSS) was a United States intelligence agency established in 1942 during World War II. It was responsible for intelligence gathering, training local resistance movements, and counter-espionage. After the war, it was dissolved, and much of its functions became part of the newly formed Central Intelligence Agency.

Behind the scenes[]

Indiana Jones: The Ultimate Guide asserts that Indiana Jones joined the OSS in December 1939 despite the office not existing until 1942.[4]

Although little of it was addressed in the movie itself,[1] the character's background as a secret agent during World War II was developed for Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull based around the idea that Indiana Jones was too old for combat and instead spent the conflict liberating art and artifacts from the Nazis, building upon his spy work during World War I,[5] which had been established for The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles.[6]
