New book on "The Man Who Never Was."

In the Guardian Euan Ferguson reviews Operation Mincemeat by Ben Macintyre (author of Agent Zigzag, about World War II secret agent and con man Eddie Chapman). The book details the successful British effort to misdirect the Nazis about the invasion of Sicily during WWII.

Go here to see the UK National Archives program on The Man Who Never Was; go here to see Bloomsbury Publishing's trailer on the book, which mentions the involvement of Ian Fleming in the operation)
