Shows there were as many backroom people involved as there were up front military personnel.
Alex Gerlis highlights not only the 'deception' that was taking place in the South of England, but that which was taking place in Scotland as well, an aspect that might have been relegated as a mere sideline but which, nonetheless, for as long as it lasted, was also important.
I was surprised how much double agents were involved - a 'spy thriller', if there was one, yet true!
It raises all sorts of 'ethical' issues concerning deception - 'official lies' and 'misinformation' to put it bluntly - which makes one wary of government pronouncements in times of war, yet, sadly, a necessity in the scenario of war, and particularly so in World War 2. 'Situational ethics' may not be popular with 'purists' but is, as this short book illustrates, a lesser 'evil' and, at times, it might be debated, actually a 'good'. (Now there's a subject for Philosophy in the Pub'!)
The book tended to be a little repetitive in parts - hence only 4 stars - but is a worthwhile read, both as an historical account and, if one wants to look at this way, a good 'yarn' as well.
I recommend it.
