The must-read paperback of the Autumn
From the Number One bestselling author of Agent Zigzag and Operation Mincemeat, comes a new true story of Second World War deception.
D-Day, 6 June 1944, the turning point of the Second World War, was a victory of arms. But it was also a triumph for a different kind of operation: one of deceit...
