Summary
"In the late 1930s, times were desperate. The world found itself at war again, hardly more than twenty years after the First World War had ended - and the stakes were never higher. The leaders of every country involved were left without a choice. They had to try to end the war as fast as possible, using whatever means they could. That meant coming up with secret operations meant to deceive, deflect, and confuse their enemies. ... Readers will be captivated by the Allies' classified, covert efforts to gain the upper hand and win the war"--front flap
