    Applied Mathematical Research in Germany, with particular Reference to Naval Applications.

    Report No. 79. British Intelligence Objectives Sub-Committee.
    First edition, the report of an investigation carried out in Germany during June-July 1945, which included visits to A. Walther at the IPM, Darmstadt, and to the University of Göttingen. Page 63 gives a brief account of "Ing. Zuse's calculating machines", written before direct contact had been established with him. As the war in Europe was drawing to a close, the Allies planned to find out as much information as possible about the work of German scientists and mathematicians, particularly those engaged in rocketry and atomic weapons.
