For Victor from Burns

In the period 1942-45 the Office of Strategic Services station in Bern, Switzerland (headed by Allen Dulles) collected information from occupied Europe and transmitted intelligence reports back to Washington. Some of these reports were decoded by the German and the Finnish codebreakers.

The following message can be found in the Finnish national archives. The original was copied from NARA, collection RG 59.



‘Umberto’ may have been Crown Prince Umberto of the House of Savoy.

I have added this message in Allen Dulles and the compromise of OSS codes in WWII.
