Biggest deception is on the back cover,
This review is from: Churchill's Wizards: The British Genius for Deception 1914-1945 (Paperback)
While the book is an interesting read, there is frankly little about deception in the first 350 pages, so I agree with the other reviewers who say, in effect, it is padded out, demonstrates that the British were not great, never mind wizards, at deception with a few notable exceptions.
The title of the book implies it is about the people which is much more accurate than to suggest, as the subtitle does, that it is about British genius.
I bought the book having been deceived by back cover reviews - "You couldn't make this stuff up ....... we could not have imagined the scope of the inventiveness, the daring of these people's imaginations". Either these reviewers are paid by the publishers or they can't have read the book.
The first book I have read where I have been really disappointed by the lack of real content.
