Here, the author notes that the UK "Air Ministry planned successfully for current exploitation" of German Air Force (GAF) radio communications, "but failed to realize that after the event exploitation could also produce useful intelligence. GC&CS also failed at first but later engaged in it successfully." In the end, "not only did the Air Section's support of the Y units improve but its output became an authoritative source of intelligence about GAF operations and tactics."

Boog, Horst. "German Air Intelligence in the Second World War." Intelligence and National Security 5, no. 2 (Apr. 1990): 350-424.

The author's ultimate conclusion is that "[t]he underestimation of foreign air power, war potential, and morale and the overestimation of German air strength by German air intelligence before the war and in its early years contributed substantially to corroborate Hitler's false view that he could successfully wage a succession of victorious campaigns against individual opponents unpunished."


Boog, Horst. "'Josephine' and the Northern Flank." Intelligence and National Security 4, no. 1 (Jan. 1989): 137-160.

The author concludes that deception plan "Fortitude North, as far as it was carried through by British controlled agents, worked well until after the invasion.... [N]ot only did the British-controlled agent reports corroborate Hitler's preoccupation with Norway, but also the reports of Josephine. Although ... Josephine was not controlled, the information he [actually, Josephine was a source designation for the Swedish air and naval attachés in London] furnished must have been controlled information intentionally leaked to diplomats in London."
