Operation Mincemeat

About this programme

In a documentary based on his book of the same name, Ben Macintyre presents the story of how Britain deceived Hitler into thinking the Allies were planning to invade Greece in 1943, allowing them to land in Sicily - their real target - with minimal resistance. The brainchild of James Bond author Ian Fleming, the deception is thought to have saved thousands of lives.
