Description
 
Jon Latimer (au). Deception has been an integral part of warfare since Troy accepted a wooden horse from the Acheans. This book is the first to describe fully the place of deception in warfare & to explain the principles that make deception successful. For example, the success of the Normandy invasion in 1944 was in large part due to the greatest ever act of military deception -- & a colossal achievement -- Operation Bodyguard. In this fascinating book, military expert Jon Latimer shows how simple some tricks have been, but also how technology has increased the range & subtlety of what is possible, using for instance bogus radio traffic, virtual images, even smell. He draws examples from land, sea & air. Black & white photos..
