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 possibility of Germany deploying chemical weapons; the impact of the surrender of Romania and Bulgaria on German strategy; German withdrawal from the Balkans; the effects of Allied bombing on German industry and oil production; predicted Japanese reactions to the Allied use of poison gas; the likelihood of a post-war underground Nazi resistance movement; the defence of Britain and its empire from aerial attacks; Japanese psychology and military morale; the leakage of information to the press; and conditions inside Germany after its collapse.
