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. The exploits of this colourful cadre of spies remained classified and unknown until the 1950s and are told here in this readable history.
