Excerpt:

 

Prior to the treaty between Portugal and Britain, which permitted the arrival of British forces in the Azores in 1943 and the secret insertion of American troops soon after, the USA mounted an extensive intelligence operation in the islands. The article is based on a presentation by the author entitled A Place in the Sun for Shady People. The paper focuses on the Allied intelligence operation in the Azores prior to Salazar judging that the Allied power to protect Portugal if necessary was greater than the German power to attack, and agreeing to sign the treaty.
