Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0451217519, Paperback)In 1940, Hitler infiltrated England with spies to gather intelligence and disrupt Allied plans. But unbeknownst to the Germans, the entire network had been captured and "turned" into double agents who reported to the British while sending misinformation to the Germans about Allied defenses and strategy. Now, after decades of secrecy, comes the first complete account of the British network that ran this "phony war."
Readers will meet "Tricycle," the model for Ian Fleming's James Bond and "Tate," who so expertly deceived the Germans that he was awarded the Iron Cross. And the greatest double agent of all, who convinced the Germans he was their principal spy in the U.K.-even as he helped the Allies pull off the greatest deception in the history of warfare
