About the Author

In the mid-1950s Hollywood produced a movie by the same name starring Clifton Webb as Montague. The movie stays fairly close to the facts with one major exception. In the movie, the Germans hire an Irish spy to determine if Martin (and thus the contents of his briefcase) was real. In reality the Germans made no such check. The movie is first rate; but the book provides details absent in the movie. For example, the book provides the contents of the papers Martin was carrying as well as translations of pertinent German documents. Both the book and the movie are well worth the reader's (or viewer's) time.

Igualmente, la historia del "hombre que nunca fue" es una historia real que parece un guión. En plena segunda guerra mundial, los ingleses se inventan a alguien y los alemanes se lo creen todo todo. Es muy buena.
