FOREWORD

given the somewhat gruesome name of "Operation Mincemeat". I was, I confess, a little dubious whether it would work; but I put it up to the Chiefs of Staff, who approved it in principle. Thereafter, Lieut.Commander Montagu, who originated the idea, and his colleagues went full steam ahead.
The operation succeeded beyond our wildest dreams. To have spread-eagled the German defensive effort right across Europe, even to the extent of sending German vessels away from Sicily itself, was a remarkable achievement. Those who landed in Sicily, as well as their families, have cause to be especially grateful.
It is not often that the whole story of a secret operation can be made public, told by someone who knows every detail. The military student can be grateful that chance has made it possible for him to have a text-book example of a very specialised branch of the art of war: others will enjoy a"real-life thriller"-which once more illustrates that truth is stranger than fiction.
