Book Overview

This Description may be from another edition of this product.

Pure catnip to fans of World War I thrillers and a lot of fun for everyone else.--Joseph Kanon, Washington Post Book World

Thrilling . . . What makes Operation Mincemeat so winning, in addition to Mr. Macintyre's meticulous research and the layers of his historcal understanding, is his elegant, jaunty, and very British high style.--Dwight Garner, New York Times

SON TO BE A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE - NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOKS OF THE YEAR BY THE NEW YORK TIMES

Near the end of World War I, two British naval officers came up with a brilliant and slightly mad scheme to mislead the Nazi armies about where the Allies would attack southern europe. To carry out the plan, they would have to rely on the most unlikely of secret agents: a dead man.

Ben Macintyre's dazzling, critically acclaimed bestseller chronicles the extraordinary story of what happened after British officials planted this dead body--outfitted in a British military uniform with a briefcase containing false intelligence documents--in Nazi territory, and how this secret mission fooled Hitler into changing military positioning, paving the way for the Allies to overtake the Nazis.
