Macintyre returns with the untold story of the grand final deception of the war and of the extraordinary spies who achieved it. D-Day was a stunning military accomplishment, but it was also a masterpiece of trickery. Operation Fortitude, which protected and enabled the invasion, and the Double Cross system, specialized in turning German spies into double agents.
