Description
In his third, riveting history of Allied espionage in World War II, following Agent Zigzag (a New York Times Notable Book of 2007) and Operation Mincemeat (a New York Times Best Book of 2011), Ben Macintyre looks at the Normandy invasion of June 6, 1944, from the perspective of the spies who helped trick Hitler into expecting the attack to come elsewhere. Operation Fortitude was the most sophisticated and successful deception operation ever carried out, ensuring Allied victory at the most pivotal point in the war, and was made possible by Britain's Double Cross system, which specialized in turning German spies into double agents.

"It should be said loud and clear that Macintyre is a supremely gifted storyteller. He spins quite a yarn. His books are absurdly entertaining. I would kill for his keen wit. He takes us into a world of bounders, spivs, roués, and men (and women) on the make.... Double Cross is a blast."—Boston Globe

"London Times writer Macintyre concludes his WWII espionage trilogy with the tantalizing tale of an oddball, 'Dirty Dozen'–like group of double agents who fool the Nazis into believing the Allied D-Day attack would come at Calais, not Normandy."—NYPost
