He was 'Garbo' to MI5, 'Alaric' to German military intelligence and, in other circumstances, Carvalho, Gerbers and Rags the Indian poet; but it is as Garbo that he is remembered: the double agent who led the Germans away from the Allies' landing beaches on D-Day. This biography goes back to his youth in Barcelona and tells the full story of Juan Pujol Garcia (1912-1988) and his life in espionage as Garbo and in many other guises.
