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 Japanese strategy, military production, and their economic situation in the summer of 1945; the likely reactions of Arab states and Palestinian Jews to possible courses of action by Britain in Palestine; post-war British intelligence organisation; information sharing with French and Soviet intelligence services; the exploitation and security of captured German archives; the likelihood of continued resistance by Japanese forces after a Japanese surrender; and the significance of the atomic bombing of Japan in August 1945.
