Product description


"One of the most creative intelligence operations of all time."--Kim Philby, British Intelligence Officer and Cold War Spy

From the Inside Flap

Much of the success of D-Day was made possible by the efforts of people who were not even present on the Normandy beaches. General Patton spent D-Day on British shores commanding a phantom army. Spanish double-agent Garbo sent messages relaying supposed intelligence from his fictitious spy network, fooling the Nazis right up until the end of the war. Even as the Normandy landings were happening, Hitler remained convinced they were a diversionary tactic to force him to move his troops. So, thanks to Fortitude, D-Day was a triumph; without it the war might well have had a very different outcome.
