Article After completing her OSS training Betty was one of the few women assigned to OSS Morale Operations “Betty’s first assignment was in the summer of 1943 After completing her OSS training she was sent to India” CIA said in a blog post While in India Betty helped produce false news reports radio messages and other propaganda designed to spread disinformation that would undermine Japanese troops who were already demoralised and retreating from their defeat by Allied forces on the Imphal Plain This included efforts to distribute forged Japanese government orders to Japanese troops in Burma “The Japanese government told their soldiers that if they surrendered they would lose their birth right and would not be able to go back to Japan” explained Betty during talks with CIA Historians on May 2 1997 and June 24 2002 “So consequently very few Japanese surrendered They cost us a great deal because they fought to the very end and many of our people too were killed So the idea was to try to get them to give up without feeling that they had lost their identity” she said In order to undermine the notion that surrender was unacceptable Betty and her team crafted a forged order permitting Japanese troops to surrender under certain conditions This was a believable scenario because there had recently been a leadership change in the Japanese government which led to a window of uncertainty

reported to the Japanese on the whereabouts of their dead courier Predictably and according to plan the Japanese retrieved their man with his mailbag and found the order that they concluded was
