Wartime really can inspire the most extraordinary innovation and creativity. In this book you will discover the secrets behind some of the real-life deceptions that turned the tide of World War Two: - Convicted thief and safebreaker Eddie Chapman who worked as a Double Cross spy for the Nazis, under British control...- Lieutenant David Stirling and the founding of the SAS in North Africa...- The sinking of three German spy ships in Goa Harbour by the Calcutta Light Horse ('The Sea Wolves')...- the brilliant boffins at Bletchley Park who broke the German secret codes. - the Navajo Code Talkers whose rare language defeated the Japanese code breakers...Presented with historic accuracy and engaging storytelling, and bursting with informative sidebars, 40 b+w archive photographs, 56 colour maps and illustrations, this book tells 19 spellbinding true stories which reveal the heroes behind some of the most creative strategies of World War Two.
