Double Cross: The True Story of the D-Day Spies by Ben Macintyre
Double Cross: The True Story of the D-Day Spies

redonbonde, January 29, 2013

The deception was led by MI5, and it succeeded despite some close calls due in large part to the oddities and eccentrcities of some of the team members -- as well as recurring doubts about the true loyalties of some of the participants, both German and British. This book is a good read!
