Description
Before he remade himself as the master spy codenamed Garbo, Juan Pujol was known simply as a poultry farmer from Barcelona. Posing as the Nazis' only reliable spy inside England, however, he gave the necessary whiff of authenticity to a massive deception involving an imaginary million-man army, a nonexistent invasion fleet, and a wide network of fictional subagents. The scheme culminated on D-Day, June 6, 1944, when Garbo helped convince the Germans that Allied forces approaching Normandy were merely a feint, and that the real invasion would come at Calais. Based on years of archival research and interviews with Pujol's family, Stephan Talty's profile reads like a gripping suspense novel.

"The book presses ever forward down a path of historical marvels and astonishing facts. The effect is like a master class that's accessible to anyone, and Agent Garbo often reads as though it were written in a single, perfect draft."Atlantic
