D-Day would never have been the success it was without Operation Fortitude. Convincing the German High Command that the Allied landings were going to be in the Pas de Calais, Fortitude was an ingenious deception plot that drew attention away from the real invasion force.Using a complex setup of double agents, fake radio broadcsts, dummy invasion craft, and imaginary troops, Fortutide was so convincing that Hitler was reluctant to believe reports of the real D-Day invasion.Operation Fortitude tells the thrilling tale of the explits of those men and women who ensured that D-Day was the pivotal turning point of the Second World War.From the Inside Flap:
The success of D-Day was made possible by the efforts of people who were not even present on the Normandy Beaches. General Patton spen D-Day on British shores commanding a phantom army. Spanish double-agent GARBO sent messages relayhing supposed intelligence from his fictitious spy network, fooling the Nazis right up until the end of the war.Even as the Normandy landings were happening, Hitler remained convinced they were a diversionary tactic to force him to move his troops. So, thanks to Fortitude, D-Day was a triumph; wihtout it the war might well have had a very different outcome.
