A reviewer for Studies 16.3 (Fall 1972) identifies this an East German production that "has garbage coming out its ears. It is inaccurate, tendentious, and brutally dull." Strangely, the Felfe case is not even mentioned.

Two FBI representatives arrived in the United Kingdom in late 1940 (that is, before Col. William Donovan arrived in early 1941). During their visit, "they surveyed British intelligence, met high-ranking intelligence officials, and reported back" to FBI Director Hoover. "The FBI director subsequently submitted a report to [President] Roosevelt ... that outlined the organization and methods of both the Security Service (MI5) and Secret Intelligence Service (SIS)."

Charlesworth, Lorie. "2 SAS Regiment, War Crimes Investigations, and British Intelligence: Intelligence Officials and the Natzweiler Trial." Journal of Intelligence History 6, no. 2 (Winter 2006-2007): 13-60. []

From abstract: This article concerns the trial in 1946 "of nine officials from Natzweiler Struthof concentration camp for the murder of four women, all believed to be SOE agents.... [W]itnesses were largely intelligence officials," an SOE officer and an intelligence officer for "2 SAS War Crimes Investigation Team" which was "largely responsible for the investigations resulting in this trial." The author "examines how the SAS, without 'official' authorisation, successfully undertook war crimes investigations (until 1948) even though the SAS Regiments were disbanded in 1945." The article "also discusses the involvement of Special Forces and intelligence officials as witnesses in the Natzweiler Trial and considers some implications for the rule of law."

This is an interesting article about Dulles' efforts to retrieve a copy of the diaries of Count Ciano, Mussolini's foreign minister 1936-1943, from Ciano's wife and the use of the diaries at the Nuremberg trial of Hitler's foreign minister, Joachim von Ribbentrop.
