“Operation Mincemeat” was an audacious mission that changed the outcome of the war. In order to feed disinformation regarding troop movements to the Axis, Montagu's team arranged for the body of an Allied marine officer wash up on a Spanish beach with false documents. We are swept along as the team finds the perfect body, calculates where to drop it in the ocean so that it will wash up in the right place, clothes it so it would appear to have been in a boat crash, and most importantly, plants an attaché case with seemingly authentic, but strategically misleading, documents. Montagu's spare prose is riveting. This is a true story that is all the more suspenseful because of its historical accuracy. He is modest about the operation, but this was no small Allied military success; it was an instance where ingenuity, daring and sheer luck—not bombs and fire power—were of great aid to the war effort.
