Interesting general work; shame about the title
on 30 October 2012
This is quite an interesting read, as long as you don't expect it to fit the title! As other reviewers have noted, the mention of Churchill in the title is misleading. He obviously features in the book, but this is a general introduction to deception, camouflage, and other such shenanigans as used during WW1 and WW2. As such it is quite a good book.
It can be a bit patchy; too detailed in some places, and lacking in substance in others, but for a reader new to this area of the two wars, it makes an interesting starting point.
