You will not be able to put it down!
18 September 2017
Being a fan of everything to do with World War Two and studying History in school this book obviously appealed to me for many reasons! I love reading about stories throughout the war and stories about deception truly captivate me. I am very glad I picked this book and dove right in!!
This story is not an untold story, it is about the transformation of an "unknown" corpse into the fictitious Captain William Martin, whose body turns into a body with a reinvented past life (love letters, hobbies and theatre life) then becomes the carrier of misleading information on the forthcoming invasion of Sicily, was deployed, apparently drowned, into the sea off Spain in 1943 as a "Trojan horse" to find its way back to German intelligence. In this story, the body of the homeless Welsh vagrant, Glyndwr Michael, proved so much more worthwhile in death rather than in life. This part of the story alone is fascinating but further more the book is about strange men, and the strange world they inhabited, behind the planning. In this world there was rivalry and ego which was found in abundance in Whitehall in those days. It is safe to say their egos may have got the better of them if it was not for the shared common enemy.
You need to get this book for yourself to understand just how great it is, you will not be able to put it down.
