Allied Military Deception in the Second World WarBook - 2004
Hollywood often depicts wars being won by brawn, fire, and steel. But as this meticulous and riveting study of strategic deception in World War II reveals, wars can be determined by guile and clever disinformation. The Allied powers used and broke codes, had agents in sensitive enemy posts, and planned and executed ingenious ploys to one-up the Axis powers. Great generals were duped. Entire armies were misled. And because of it, the bloodiest war in human history was ended. Through declassified documents and interviews with war survivors, Thaddeus Holt presents-in astonishing detail-the secrets that helped the Allies win the Second World War. Book jacket.
