"Within the first year of the war, Dulles and his staff established intelligence networks in Germany, France, Italy, Yugoslavia, Czechoslovakia, Bulgaria, Hungary, Spain, Portugal, and North Africa. He helped the Maquis in France develop their resistance operations and provided support to Italian partisan groups. Dulles also ran one of the single most important informants of the war: Fritz Kolbe, who worked in the German Foreign Office. Various governmental agencies valued his reports on bombing targets, troop movements, and Allied air raid damage. He also supplied some of the first reports on the experimental and testing site for the German rocket bomb in Peenemünde and the installation sites for the rocket bomb in Pas de Calais."
