Incredible. Amazing. According to the research by author Hervie Haufler, ALL of the supposed Nazi spies in England during WWII were actually double agents. This book gives short descriptions of the lives of some of the most important of these agents--every one of which would make a fantastic movie. The background and activities of the double agents are the focus of the book. The author gives details about how carefully the communications from the double agents were coordinated in order to provide the Nazis with tantalizing pieces of info that they would assemble into a "big picture" of the strength of the Allied forces. With the barrage of misinformation, along with the use of inflatable tanks, plywood planes, etc., they were able to convince Hitler of the existence of entire "notional" (i.e., fictional) armies poised to strike north Africa, Norway, Pas de Calais in France, and so forth. Then it describes how, under the guidance of British intelligence, they mounted an elaborate scheme to convince Hitler that the attack on Normandy was going to be only a minor feint.
The author himself is a hale and hearty 80-something who was one of the few U.S. servicemen to work with the code-breakers at England's famous Bletchley Park. This is one of the first books he's ever written, I believe, so his style is somewhat awkward. However, the subject matter more than makes up for it. Highly recommended. ( )
