5.0 out of 5 stars Very good book, 13 April 2012
This review is from: Operation Fortitude: The Greatest Hoax of the Second World War (Paperback)
Most people who've read about WW2 know that Hitler held back a large part of his army during D-Day and the weeks after because he feared an attack on Calais. This excellent book goes into detail about how the Allies fooled the Nazis into believing that entire phantom armies existed, the lives and motivations of the double agents and their handlers who pulled it off and how the whole thing had an unlikely beginning.

I picked up this book as an impulse buy and enjoyed every page of it. It shows how the origins of Double Cross and Fortitude were both brilliant planning and amazing dumb luck. A fascinating and occasionally hilarious read.
