Hello to all :D; a query...........................

Hiroshi Ōshima in Berlín.

..............Much of the intelligence gained by Eisenhower on the Atlantic Wall defences came from Oshima’s reports rather than from Enigma. “Fish” has been credited with being an invaluable resource of D-Day intelligence............................

Given the insane amount of intelligence gathering done by the Allies themselves I wonder how much Oshima's notes done from memory actually helped.

Great story, though.
