THE GERMAN HIGH COMMAND GETS
BUSY

Doenitz's conclusion, promulgated by Keitel, is that "the western assault forces appear to be ready for an immediate attack," which could begin at any time (how right he was!), whereas "the eastern force appears still to be forming up" (how wrong he was: they in fact took part in the invasion of Sicily).
On the early morning of the Ioth July our forces had landed in Sicily, but the Germans still could not believe that that was the real assault (and that the documents must have been a plant): the German High Command asked that a special look-out should be kept by the German agents on the shores of the Straits of Gibraltar for convoys which would be going to attack Corsica and Sardinia-they presumably still thought that the landings in Sicily (although on the side of the island that they did not anticipate) were a diversion to draw attention from the main operation.
But by the 12th July even the German belief in the accuracy of the "Mincemeat" documents had begun to weaken-after all, the invasion of Sicily was obviously genuine and had been going on for two days.
We found two messages passing between the German Naval Commander-in-Chief in Italy and the Naval High Command. In the first, the Commanderin-Chief complains bitterly that the departure of the 1st R-boat Group (which had been sent to the.AEgean for the defence of Greece) had prejudiced the defence of Sicily, as a gap had been left in the patrols, which were consequently ineffective. He stated that the shortage of small craft was "chronic" and that the
