    Operation Fortitude was an elaborate, mind-boggling hoax – using rubber tanks, canvas ships, plywood aircraft, and even dummy soldiers to fool the Germans about where we secretly planned to land on D-Day.

    Another excellent entry. The hoax perpetrated on the Germans was astounding. I read The Man Who Never Was and Operation Mincemeat which was another layer of deception. Amazing.
