Description
In addition to the enormous amount of planning and training that went into the Allied invasion of Normandy on June 6, 1944, the success of D-Day was due in large part to an ingenious and complex web of deception known as Operation Fortitude, designed to mislead the Nazis as to when, how, and where the landings would occur. After poring over MI5 files and other documents made available at Britain's National Archives at Kew, Joshua Levine gives us a detailed picture of the entire operation, from the staging of inflatable rubber tanks and the dropping of radar-fooling chaff to fake intelligence messages and the misinformation fed to German double agents, which Levine credits as the decisive gambit.
