The carefully orchestrated deception by the British to leak false invasion plans to the Germans was dramatized in the 1956 film The Man Who Never Was. This classic account of the operation, first published in 1953, describes how the body of the fictitious Major Martin came to wash up on the Spanish coast in 1943, traces how the false information found its way to the German High Command, and investigates the identity of the corpse that was used.
