Subjects covered in this file include Allied landings in Italy, the possibility of an Italian collapse and armistice, and the German reaction; the blockading of vital German resources; the Axis oil position; the effects of bombing raids on Germany; security measures for prisoners of war and the domestic press; the Soviet attitude to the Polish resistance movement; potential Axis and Allied attacks on Spain; the possibility of a German withdrawal from Norway and the Balkans; the possibility of a separate German peace with the Soviet Union; and Japanese strategy.
