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 British operations in Burma and Borneo; the possibility of Germany and Japan deploying chemical weapons; the threat of German flying bomb attacks; suggestions for an Allied incursion into Switzerland to turn the German flank; German oil production and fuel shortages; the effects of Allied bombing campaigns; the collapse of German defensive positions on the Eastern Front; and the prediction of German plans after the capture of Berlin.
