Operation Wolf (v)

'Wolf' (v) was a British deception, subsidiary to 'Stultify', designed to bring the the current advance in the Arakan western coastal region of Burma into step with 'Knockout' (ii) threat to the Japanese positions in south-western Burma (December 1944).

The 'story' promulgated by 'Wolf' (v) was that the advance in Arakan was designed primarily to secure airfields from which the 'Claw' offensive in south-eastern Burma, which was another deception, could be provided with effective air support.
