MAJOR MARTIN GETS READY FOR WAR

WE had gone steadily on with our preparations although final approval for the launching of the operation had not yet been obtained.
After considering Sir Archibald Nye's letter, the Chiefs of Staff had given approval in principle; we now pressed for authority to start. There was bound to be a conflict of interest at this stage: the Chiefs of Staff were naturally reluctant to become committed to the Germans receiving the information contained in the letter as our strategy might be changed-if that had happened it would not have been for the first time! On the other hand, we simply had to get the letter to Spain by the beginning of May if the operation was to be of any value; we had to give the German Intelligence Service time to get the information, convince themselves of its genuineness by any checkup that they might want, and then to "appreciate" it and pass the result on to the operational staff. The latter would then need time to make their arrangements and to send their forces to the wrong placesand, if we wanted them not to fortify Sicily, it was no good waiting until those fortifications were complete.
The Chiefs of Staff accepted this necessity and gave their final approval, subject to reference to the Prime Minister, to whom the matter was submitted through General Ismay.
