OPERATION MINCEMEAT by Ben Macintyre. (Bloomsbury 2010)


"One April morning in 1943 a sardine fisherman spotted the corpse of a British soldier floating in the sea off the coast of Spain and set in train a series of events that would change the course of the Second World War."


Referred to previously as 'the man who never was', the passage of time and newly released material has given the author the full story of the hoodwinking of the Nazi espionage chiefs prior to Operation Husky. A thoroughly absorbing read!
