Operation Mincemeat : how a dead man and a bizarre plan fooled the Nazis and assured an allied victory / Ben Macintyre.

Publication | Library Call Number: D810.S7 M246 2010

From the acclaimed author of "Agent Zigzag" comes an extraordinary account of the most successful deception--and certainly the strangest--ever carried out in World War II, one that changed the prospects for an Allied victory. The purpose of the plan--code named Operation Mincemeat--was to deceive the Nazis into thinking that Allied forces were planning to attack southern Europe by way of Greece or Sardinia, rather than Sicily, as the Nazis had assumed, and the Allies ultimately chose.
