This chapter begins with a discussion regarding major changes in Britain's fortunes of war between July 1941 and December 1942: humiliation in the Far East at the hands of Japan, catastrophic reverses in North Africa, and the lack of control over India during the Quit India campaign. It then discusses the issue of the German legation radio, SIS and Ireland, German and IRA activities, Irish espionage (the Basket Case), Anglo-Irish cooperation on security, intelligence and diplomatic activities, and British propaganda.
