5.0 out of 5 stars operation mincemeat
This book is definitely THE book of the decade! If it was novel,it would be accused as being "Too far fetched" I can't recommend this book enough,you simply can't put it down!
A true WW2 story were the details have only been recently released.
Ben McIntyre is a truly great author,and i can also recommend "Agent Zigzag" and a "Foreign Field" both previous books...

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as zigzag
This was OK for a long car journey. The basics of the story are probably well known to most people but the story is padded out with a lot of other information, much of which is very interesting.

Not a patch on Agent Zigzag though - that was great.

Ben McIntyre is a truly great author,and i can also recommend "Agent Zigzag" and a "Foreign Field" both previous books by him,he's truly going to have a hard job following "Mincemeat!"

This is great for listening to on a long car journey. Truly enthralling, with plenty of detail without being dense. Amazing rendition of the voices and tones of the time. Highly recommended.

This review is from: Operation Mincemeat: The True Spy Story That Changed the Course of World War II (Audio CD)
great story/history - but a little too drawn out over 9 cd's and making the Germans speak English with an accent was rather poor
solution. suppose selected in relation to the level of British language skills .....
