Agent Garbo: the brilliant, eccentric secret agent who tricked Hitler and saved D-Day by Stephan Talty
"Dwight Eisenhower was the all-powerful commander of the Allied forces in Europe; every ship's quartermaster, every tank gunner, every medic was technically under his command. Pujol, on the other hand was the emperor of an imaginary world. He was the linchpin in the plan to fool Hitler into believing the attack was coming not at Normandy but up the French coast at Calais. His mission was to keep the Fifteenth Army that was causing Eisenhower such deep worry out of the action."
This is the story of secret Agent Garbo.
