Because of the extraordinary importance of the World War II years, UPA has published in their entirety the Confidential Prints for Africa, 1940-1945. For a combination of security and financial reasons, there is no modern period more poorly covered by the published documentation of the British government-and little or no possibility that the government will ever publish these documents. The lack of access to this material has hindered scholarship for half a century; its availability will play a crucial role in historical research in the coming decades. The documents in Part III cover political, economic, and military affairs; present historical surveys; and record information on heads of missions and other key personalities. The countries and regions encompassed in Part III include Egypt, Sudan, Abyssinia, Liberia, Morocco, Tangier, French North and West Africa, the Belgian Congo, Madagascar, and Mozambique. Among the topics are * Weekly political summaries of events in Egypt; * Relations between British and Egyptian governments; * King Farouk's relations with Nahas Pasha; * Assassination of Lord Moyne; * The Egyptian army; * The constitution of the Suez Canal Company; * Sudan budget, 1944; * Aswan Dam scheme; * Abyssinia: return of Emperor Haile Selassie; * Missionary activities; * Abyssinian army; * Foreign policy claims; * Lake Tsana boundary; * Liberia: reports on personalities; * Political and economic reports; * French and Spanish Morocco; * Tangier neutral zone; * Spanish policy aims; * Allied landings in North Africa; * French North and West Africa: new constitution of 1944; * Belgian Congo: war effort; * Admission of Jews; * Anti-British feeling; * Economic report on Madagascar, 1944; * Mozambique constitutional status
