If you want to know much of what went on to deceive Hitler about the plans to invade Normandy, this is the best place to start. Unlike most TV shows made for the US market, it was the British who led the deception. The US had a heavy role, of course, but the British can claim most of the credit. The invasion of Normady was a winner-take-all event. Had we lost, Hitler would have destroyed most of the armies of Britain and the US, Roosevelt may not have been re-elected, and Hitler would send his forces to the east and may have defeated Russia on his second try. He would have dominated Europe forcing Britain and the US to a compromise treaty, and we may not have had the will to defeat Japan. We barely had that will after the defeat of Germany. So the successful deception about Normandy was key to winning WWII. The information in this book should be general knowledge. Some of it is, most of it is not.
But if I had $10 for every time I heard or read the term: "The truth will set you free," then I would be a very wealthy man. And if I had a $1000 for every time a person of power told the clear truth, then I would not have any more money.
