Description

A volume of reports commissioned for the Joint Intelligence Sub-Committee (JIC). The JIC was formed of representatives from the intelligence services, the armed services, and the Foreign Office. Its purpose was to assess military, security, and foreign policy requirements and coordinate Britain’s intelligence organisations accordingly. A vast range of international and domestic issues are investigated and analysed in the JIC’s reports. Subjects covered in this file include assessments of Axis military strength, war aims, and predicted strategy; the security of the British base at Gibraltar; rumours designed to undermine German morale; the effects of bombing raids on Germany; the politics and security of Allied-controlled Lebanon and Syria; the possibility of Axis attacks on Allied supplies from South America; plans for the liberation of Burma; the fortification of German-occupied France; the Japanese threat to India; security problems amongst the Free French; and the security of Allied supplies sent to the U.S.S.R.
