Product description

Review

'A rollicking read for all those who enjoy a spy story so fanciful that Ian Fleming - himself an officer in Montagu's wartime department - would never have dared to invent it' Max Hastings, Sunday Times 'Ben Macintyre, also the author of the acclaimed Agent Zigzag, is fast becoming a one-man industry in these updated tales of cunning, bravery and skulduggery. With his mix of meticulous research and a good hack's eye for narrative, it is hard to think of a better guide to keep beckoning us back to that fascinating world' Observer 'Even more spellbinding than his previous story of wartime espionage, Agent Zigzag, with a cast-list every bit as dotty and colourful ... Macintyre is a master of the thumbnail character sketch' Mail on Sunday 'Astonishing ... sheds riveting new light on this breathtaking plan' Daily Mail

Book Description

From the bestselling author of Agent Zigzag. The thrilling true story of the greatest and most successful wartime deception ever attempted

Why do some authors insist on gilding the lily? The facts of this piece of history are fascinating of themselves and only suffer with the addition of fictional nonsense. Don't waste my time with the description of stereotypical caricatures behaving as if they're from an Enid Blyton novel. If you want to write a fiction, by all means do. But don't shoe-horn it into a piece of non-fiction without a clear warning up front that that is what I'm buying.

I love this author if it wasn't true you wouldn't believe it very funny in parts I find the whole espionage story fascinating and very troubled, people meant nothing the end result was all. Brilliant!

Not only does MacIntyre spin a tantalisingly interesting spy yarn, but also conducts significant historical analysis in this thoroughly enjoyable work
