An important factor in the ultimate success of D-Day was the grand deception that the Allies would attack the Pas-de-Calais and not Normandy. A small group of foreign spies that had been turned to the Allied cause were a critical part of this hoax, feeding misinformation to the German High Command. Ben Macintyre describes the exploits of this colourful cadre of spies whose activities remained classified until the 1950s.
