A report by the Combined [British/US] Intelligence Objectives Sub-Committee (CIOS); December 1944
Three separate reports combined into one on the manufacture of Junkers jet engines at the Matford Plant, Strasbourg.
CIOS 'Black List of targets for urgent investigation' category: Jet propulsion; aircraft engines
Duplicated typewritten report in English, 10 x 7.5 inches, 25 x 19 cms. 33 pages, 6 photographs, other illustrations
Very good in original stapled card wrappers.
Reports I and II are by ALSOS US Navy members, report III by a CIOS team.
The ALSOS Mission was created following the September 1943 Allied invasion of Italy to search for enemy scientific personnel, records, material, and sites and prevent their capture by the Soviet Union.
'ALSOS' was a code name (the Greek word for 'grove'), not an acronym.
