RADAR and Controlled Missiles

Paris Area


This is the first joined UK and US combined intelligent report on Germany and their foreign affiliated industries abroad. France was the liberated country on the European continent, as Italy was not entirely liberated until the German defeat in May 1945.


They might have expected that the French industry have been involved in the particular technique. Which wasn't the case, as the Germans kept all Alien industries as a potential danger. They were, of course, engaged, but only in those cases were not much was at stake.

This report nevertheless, provide a nice inside vision on the French involvement and in the way they could minimize their German production engagements.

Knowing the many Allied reports rather well, it is evident that the first investigation party had to find their way in a kind of 'mine field'. They lacked experience, on which later teams could rely upon.
