Published for the very first time, the top-secret report Some Weaknesses in German Strategy and Organisation 1933-1945 was prepared by Whitehall's highest intelligence body, the Joint Intelligence Committee, and presented to Britain's Chiefs of Staff in 1946 to "set down certain aspects of the War whilst there are still sources available who were closely connected with the events described". Paul Winter sets this unique and important document in its historical setting, providing biographies of key figures referenced in the report and a timeline of the crucial events of the Second World War.

A fascinating document..
It's important to realise this isn't a history book per se - it's an actual report prepared by Whitehall after the end of WWII. So if you want to delve into the complexity of the establishment's view of why Hitler lost the war for Germany, supported by lists of facts and figures and numerous appendices and written in functional, bullet point style - it's a truly amazing resource. Well read and presented. With some fascinating revelations to be uncovered. But if you want an easy listen, this is perhaps not for you.
