Enchwoman whose obsessive love for er pet dog nearly wrecked the entire plan Needless to say it is up to the Spinetinglers Anthology 2008 high standards that we Ben Macintyre fansave come to expect Once again truth is stranger than fiction It s a compelling read and another remarkable slice of previously untold WW2 Angélique à Québec (Angelique: Original version history 45 The least entertaining and successful of Macintyre s WWII spy books IMO probably because the cast of characters was too numerous and nothing interesting reallyappened until the final 100 pagesNonetheless fans of non fiction espionage should find some wheat amongst the chaff in this revelation of the part spies and deception played in the successful allied invasion of Normandy otherwise known as D DayMacintyre knows Body Image, Eating Disorders, and Obesity his material and gives the reader a full complement of material available on the spies theirandlers the tactics and the run up and completion of the operation How Hitler and Co were fooled and re directed in where the allied troops would launch their invasion is almost too unbelievable for words If it were a book of fiction you d shake your The Doughboys head in sheer disbelief at the credulity of the bad guys to fall for such a plot But this is not fiction and the broad axe tactics employed by allied counter intelligence and a motley crew of spies no doubt saved thousand of lives on D Day This is an astonishingly good absolutely riveting account of a disparate group of individuals whose exploits during WW2 went largely unsung It was provided to me by netgalley and is well written withumor empathy and clarity It brings in accounts of other operations and the bigger picture to provide context but never moves away from the double agents themselvesI 魔法使いの涙 [Mahou Tsukai no Namida] honestlyad no idea that such an infuriating temperamental intelligent and diverse a group of people played such an important role in the success of the D Day landings or in assisting the work of the codebreakers at Bletchley Park They all did the work for a variety of reasons from greed to boredom to fierce Futurity hatred of the Nazis but there is no doubting the courage of any of them nor the complete ignorance in the Nazis in trusting in them so blindly I found the comparisons between the German and British intelligent organizations fascinating After all the individuals running them and operating in them were essentially eually capable eually intelligent and eually well resourced So why did the British succeed where the Nazis didn t and not only succeed but succeed with such panacheThis was a wonderful read I loved reading some of the bonkers messages the agents sent to their German case officers andearing about their various exploitsI particularly enjoyed the epilogue which beautifully and concisely described what Ouija in Suburbia happened to the double agents their case officers from both sides and associates after the war but ends exactly where it should paying tribute to the agent who was possibly most flawed most dodgy least brave and yet most courageous when faced with Nazi torture He ultimately gaveis life to save thousands of allied soldiers landing in NormandyJust read it 5 stars D Day The beginning of the end of the Second World War But for this massive operation to succeed the Allies Reclaiming Authentic Fundamentalism had to do every trick in the book to convince the Nazis that the invasion was going to take place in a different locationSo was conceived Operation Fortitude an audacious plan of lies

their German masters this picture of troop movements and build of arms and materiel Even though there were some doubters in the German echelons this story dreamt up by a team in London was swallowedook line and sinkerBut it so nearly wasn t Macintyre brings alive the tension as the web of deceit was spun from the near misses as agents were arrested to the appalling Lenora handling of agent Treasure over petty amounts of money He describes their character flaws and ultimately courage of the job that they performed Macintyre mustave sifted through Caz Sanatı hundreds of secret

ave never eard of and the key roles they played in changing European and World istory Well written as usual there are points where it reads like a spy thriller even though it was really life A great story about the misinformation fed to German intelligence by a group of spies and double agents working for MI5 during WW2 culminating in a successful D Day spies and double agents working for MI5 during WW2 culminating in a successful D Day at Normandy I ran out of gas around page 65 I don t know why I keep picking up spy non fiction books when I know that there is nothing exciting about the

With this narrative Mr Macintyre once again proves The Penguin History of Early India he is a master of telling the stories of British Intelligence This book is than the story of Operation Fortitude the Allies attempt to convince the Germans that the invasion of France was going to be somewhere other than Normandy The author tells the story ofow British Intelligence MI 6 completely penetrated the German spy network in Great Britain and used that control to tell the Germans exactly what the Allies wanted them to Exploring with Frémont hear and to a great extent what the Germans themselves wanted to believe According to the author every agent Germany attempted to insert into Great Britain was captured Most were imprisoned a few executed and some became double agentsThe author does a good job of describing the covert intel war on the Iberian Peninsula It seems it became the central theater in the war between MI 6 and German Intelligence the Abwehr Especially in the early war most of the German controllers were based in either Spain or Portugal In telling the story of the Abwehr s attempts to get agents into Britain Mr Macintyre does an excellent job to discussing the weaknesses and frankly the gullibility in the German agents controlling their British Spy ringHe looks atow both sides recruited agents controlled them their methods of communications and Turn On, Tune In, Drop Out how the British used the time delay for getting information from Britain to Spain to their advantage Sometimes this was done in letting agents give the Germans actual operational details but timed in such a way that they would arrive too late to be of any useWhene starts telling of the story of Operation Fortitude Beauty and the Beast (Demon Tales, he looks at justow the information the agents were giving the Germans reinforced their preconceived notions of when and where they invasions would take place the area around the Pal de Calais in northern France and closest part of France to Britain He also tells of The Secret Life of Callie McGuire how they inflated the Allied Order of Battle to such an extent that even after the troops landed on D Day the Germans believed that there was still enough strength in Britain to conduct another landingIn addition to the double agents the author does look at some of the other methods the Allies used to reinforce what they where sending their German controllers This includes the famous rubber vehicles and planes false radio traffic using General Patton as a decoy etcThe author also looks at the American attempts to get into the intel gameow it almost cost MI 6 one of their better agents It seems that in the attempt to be good partners MI 6 let the FBIOSS run one the agents who Kuzuların Sessizliği had moved to the US The attempt failed because Herbert Hoover theead of the FBI did not believe in or trust double agents and wouldn t allow the agent to be given anything at all believable or of any use to the Germans After about six months the agent reverted to British control and according to the author left a bad taste all around and a rather large When We Left Cuba hotel bill for the Americans to payFinally in telling the stories of the agentse really does look at their motivations The men and women s reasons ran the gamut from patriotism one was a Polish Fighter pilot who despised the Germans to greed a couple of them were looking for SOMEONE TO BANKROLL THEIR LIFESTYLES TO BOREDOM WITH LIFE to bankroll their lifestyles to boredom with life the thought that spying would be exciting The author includes an epilogue that tells what appened to the main characters after the war that I found extremely interestingI found this a very informational and gripping read It is definitely a 4 star read I rounded down for GR This book was absolutely ilarious It is proof of THE OLD ADAGE THAT TRUTH IS old adage that truth is than fiction I don t think any fiction authors could invent the wacky people in this book because they wouldn t Protecting Your Parents Money have been believedI uote a few sentences from the book to prove my point p5 6For the D Day spies were without uestion one of the

Island (Max Cassidy, how funnyis material can be in places but in typical British understated style simply presents the information knowing that readers would find this funnier for it not being labeled as such However before anyone gets the idea that the writer is simply aving a great time with this material the last few pages are a tribute to one spy in particular who likely died in a concentration camp although no one really knows is fate He also makes it clear throughout the book ow essential this effort was The misinformation fed to the Germans meant that they refused to move additional troops to Normandy when D Day appened This kept the casualties much lower than they would The Viking's Captive (Clan Hakon Series Book 2) (English Edition) have otherwise and possibly kept
