Abstract

In January 1948 the British government launched a new anti-Communist propaganda policy, and established a new Foreign Office Information Research Department (IRD) to coordinate that policy. This article examines the extent to which anti-Communist propaganda was coordinated with Britain's principal Cold War ally the United States, following the launch of America's own anti-Communist propaganda offensive, the 'Campaign of Truth' in 1950. It traces the policy and organizational machinery for cooperation which was established in 1950 and examines the implementation of the policy for 'close and continuous liaison' in London, Washington and in the field
