Product description

Review

A rollicking read for all those who enjoy a spy story so fanciful that Ian Fleming - himself an officer in Montagu's wartime department - would never have dared to invent it -- Max Hastings ― Sunday Times

Astonishing ... Sheds riveting new light on this breathtaking plan ― Daily Mail

Ben Macintyre, also the author of the acclaimed
Agent Zigzag, is fast becoming a one-man industry in these updated tales of cunning, bravery and skulduggery. With his mix of meticulous research and a good hack's eye for narrative, it is hard to think of a better guide to keep beckoning us back to that fascinating world ― Observer

Macintyre has a journalist's nose for
a great story, and a novelist's skill in its narration ... Even more spellbinding than his previous story of wartime espionage, Agent Zigzag, with a cast-list every bit as dotty and colourful ... Macintyre is a master of the thumbnail character sketch ― Mail on Sunday

With its
fantastic plot and its cast of eccentric characters, the book reads like the most improbable of spy stories. It is a tribute to Macintyre's skill that we never for a moment forget that it is actually all true ― Daily Telegraph

Brilliant and almost absurdly entertaining -- Malcolm Gladwell ― New Yorker

Book Description

The thrilling true story of the greatest and most successful wartime deception ever attempted - soon to be a major film, starring Colin Firth, Matthew Macfadyen, Kelly Macdonald, Penelope Wilson, Johnny Flynn and Jason Isaacs
