The Intelligence Machine and the Decision Making Process

(p.11) I The Intelligence Machine and the Decision Making Process
France and the Nazi Menace


Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses the intelligence services in Germany and its decision making process. The most important characteristic of the intelligence community is that it was dominated by the military. The intelligence services were located within the army, naval, and air force general staffs and were staffed by officers from these services. Intelligence was not integrated into the decision making process and this has been endorsed by historians of French intelligence. Intelligence became marginalized in the process of decision making.

Keywords:   intelligence services, decision making, Germany, military, French intelligence
