Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Bodyguard" is the compelling true story of the most audacious confidence trick in the history of warfare, "Operation Bodyguard," the secret plan to save D-Day from disaster.

How the British managed to convince Hitler and his generals into believing the invasion of Europe in 1944 would take place across the Straits of Dover and not on the beaches of Normandy is a tale worthy of a fictional spy novel.

Author Owen Platt has woven a fascinating narrative of the battle of wits to save the lives of countless thousands of allied troops as they swarmed the beaches of Normandy to free Europe from the Nazi occupation.

Only the success of "Operation Bodyguard" stood between them and a disaster of epic proportions. It was the biggest bluff of all time.
