Deception - the greatest weapon in war

Itʼs 1943. The Allies are determined to break Hitlerʼs grip on occupied Europe and plan an all-out assault on Sicily, but they face an impossible challenge – how to protect a massive invasion force from potential massacre.

It falls to two remarkable intelligence officers, Ewen Montagu and Charles Cholmondeley, to dream the most inspired and improbable disinformation strategy of the war – centred on the most unlikely of secret agents: a dead man.

Based on ‘Operation Mincemeat’ by Ben Macintyre.

‘Operation Mincemeat’ is the extraordinary and true story of an idea that hoped to turn the tide for the Allies - taking impossibly high risks, defying logic, and testing the nerves of its creators to breaking point.
