In the war against Hitler, the Allies had to use every ounce of cunning and trickery that they possessed. Combining military deceptions with the double-agent network run by the intelligence services, they were able to send the enemy misleading information about Allied troops, plans and operations. From moving imaginary armies around the desert to putting a corpse with false papers floating in the Mediterranean, and from faking successful bombing campaigns to the convoluted deceptions which kept part of the German forces away from Normandy prior to D-Day, Terry Crowdy explores the deception war that combined the double-agent network with ingenious plans to confuse and hoodwink the F'hrer.

At first I found this book riveting. British Espionage and counterespionage against Nazi Germany. Lots of episodes of during-do and deception. But after a while this book descended into tedium and a pea-soup of names and acronyms. After a while, about half way through the book in fact, the excitement wore off.
If you’re a WW lol enthusiast, this back may be for you. For me it simply became more pea-soup.
