Synopsis: This text provides an insider account of the counter-intelligence operation (Operation Mincemeat) which paved the way for the Allied invasion of Sicily during World War II. It outlines the audacious and innovative plot to outwit the Germans by washing up a dead body on Spanish shores complete with apparently confidential information concealed about its person. Surprising and often amusing difficulties were faced in creating a new life and persona for "the man who never was", but as the new introduction to the book shows, the operation was a phenomenal success.

About the Author:
During the Second World War, Ewen Montagu ran a highly secret sub-branch of the naval intelligence division at the Admiralty handling counter-espionage. He was present at the W board, the informal committee that ran the most secret intelligence war, and sat as the naval member of the XX committee which supervised the playing-back of captured Abwehr agents. At the end of the war he returned to law, becoming judge advocate of the fleet in 1945. In addition to The Man Who Never Was, he also published Beyond Top Secret U, a war autobiography explaining how much of his work had depended on the deciphering done at Bletchley Park
