Details

While the story of British agents’ misdirection of Axis intelligence services in the run up to D-Day is well known, fewer people know that this approach originated in the North African campaign. The British were heavily outnumbered and in serious difficulties when General Wavell instigated a campaign to exaggerate their strength using various subterfuges and deceptive manoeuvres, leading to the formation of the ‘A’ force organization which specialized in tactical and strategic deception.
