A volume of reports commissioned for the Joint Intelligence Committee (JIC). The JIC was formed of representatives from the intelligence services, the armed services, and the Foreign Office.

A vast range of international and domestic issues are investigated and analysed in the JIC's reports. Subjects covered in this file include the probable course of a Soviet invasion of the United Kingdom; the intentions of Chinese communists in Korea and Southeast Asia; the British need for Russian-speaking personnel; information sharing with French forces in East Africa; the threat of peacetime and wartime sabotage in the UK; the strength of Soviet anti-aircraft defences; indications of Soviet preparations for war; the likelihood of a Soviet invasion of Yugoslavia; the rearmament of West Germany; and projected intelligence requirements following a Soviet invasion of Western Europe.
