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.

A vast range of international and domestic issues are investigated and analysed in the JIC’s reports. Subjects covered in this file include Nazi-Soviet peace proposals; Allied strategy, and a proposed timetable for the defeat of Japan; Soviet intentions in Norway; planning for Allied operations to recapture South East Asia; German manpower and resources and the possibility of a German collapse; the effects of bombing raids on Romanian oil fields; the military and political situation in the Balkans; the possibility of the Germans using poison gas; the financial costs of coastal defence artillery batteries in Britain; and the military situation on the Eastern Front.
