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 the planning of Operation Torch; possible German reactions to Allied operations in North Africa; German relations with Spain; the Chinese capacity to continue resisting Japanese operations; future German strategy in the event of a Soviet collapse; the threat to Persia and Iraq posed by German advances in the Caucasus region; German forces available to defend against an Allied landing in France in 1943; German economic prospects for 1943; and the use of balloons to disrupt communications and electricity supplies on the continent.
