Personal code telegram from William Warnock to Joseph P. Walshe (Dublin)

BERLIN, 17 March 1943

Now that German Army has recovered after crisis in East, and winter is over, one can form some general opinion. I should say

  1. People are losing faith in total victory, and many are pessimistic. There is growing feeling no European country can win and that only America can gain;
  2. Despite changed note in public opinion Germans are determined to do all in their power to avoid defeat. They feel more than match for British or American Armies; they fear Russians only because of masses which they have at their disposal;
  3. Air raids are having psychological effect, as they are really devastating. In the last raid on Berlin, many thousands of families were left homeless;
  4. Anti-Bolshevik propaganda very successful. Continental countries have much clearer idea of what Bolshevism means than British or American.
