Subjects covered in this file include the development of German secret weapons, including V1 missiles; the Axis oil position; the situation in Yugoslavia; the effects of Turkey entering to war on the Allied side; German penetration of Special Operations Executive (SOE) networks in occupied Europe; an assessment of German forces available to repel an Allied invasion of France; the effects in Germany of the Allied policy of unconditional surrender; plans for the liberation of Burma; Japanese propaganda; colonial independence movements in India and Thailand; and a potential Allied landing in Norway.
