Recently Read: “The Secret History of the PWE”

I just finished the The Secret History of PWE: The Political Warfare Executive, 1939-1945 written by David Garnett.

The Political Warfare Executive was the UK Secret Service doing propaganda in WW2.

It was an interesting read. I especially liked the country by country sections on what messages were used.

One thing stood out at me. Given the urgency of the situation (aka survival) to the UK, there was still still lots of political/bureaucratic in-fighting.

I guess that explains part of the US problem.
