FIAT FINAL REPORT No. 1313   (2013-03-19)
FIAT FINAL REPORT No. 1313 (FIAT = Field Intellignce Agency Technical)
PB 85172 (PB = Publications Board)
At the end of the Second World War, representatives of the British Intelligence Objectives Subcommittee (BIOS), the Combined Intelligence Objectives Subcommittee (CIOS), and the U.S. Field Intelligence Agency, Technical (FIAT), visited German manufacturing plants, research laboratories, and other war-related facilities to interview managers, scientists, and engineers. After collecting relevant documents, these groups wrote technical briefs on individual subjects, production processes and new technologies. They also prepared reports on whole industries - notably the German dye industry.
Though frequently cited, this 3-volume report on the German dye industry, published in 1948 by the Joint Intelligence Objectives Agency, Washington, DC, is not available on the Internet and it is absent from most libraries.
