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 German will to resist after United States and Soviet front lines met in Germany; possible actions of the German garrison in Norway; the danger of further V-weapon attacks on southern England; possible Nazi plans to stage a last stand in southern Germany and Austria; the exchange of information with the Soviets concerning captured V-weapon sites; the protection and exploitation of German archives; political conditions in Japan; the abrogation of the Soviet-Japanese Neutrality Pact; and the possibility of a Soviet invasion of Manchuria.
