Reviews

"A must-read book of the can't-put-it-down variety." -Mason Webb, "WWII History Magazine" (May 2009)
"Filled with complex, intertwined stories, "Deceiving Hitler" is aimed at the hardcore history buff, yet still accessible enough for the casual reader interested in tales of espionage. It s yet another reminder why 'Keep your friends close and your enemies closer' has such enduring value." -Jason Zasky, www.failuremag.com
"By 1941 every German spy in Britain had been captured by the British secret service and offered the option of double-crossing the Germans, or death. Those who chose life - the majority - formed a secret unit that embarked on a range of deceptive campaigns during the war, from creating fake tanks to hide British weakness to deceiving Hitler about the D-Day landings. No collection strong in World War II history should be without this extensive survey of the various deception plots - and even many a general interest lending library will find it a fascinating, different pick." -"California Bookwatch" (December 2008)"
