Hoodwinking Hitler: The Normandy Deception

Synopsis

Hoodwinking Hitler is a you-are-there, action-packed account of the intricate deception plans and operations that misled German intelligence professionals--and Adolf Hitler--about the timing and locale of the June 1944 Normandy invasion of Fortress Europe. Every facet of the monumental deception plan is treated in depth; diplomacy, electronic codes and code-breaking, intelligence, counter-intelligence, double agents, the French underground, camouflage, strategic feints, global whispering campaigns, and tactical sacrifices. The success of the Allies in this campaign of deception led to victory in one of the most successful military campaigns in history.
