    " In Double Cross, Ben Macintyre tells the story of the double agents who were in no small measure responsible for the success of the Allied landing at Normandy during WWII. They were an unlikely collection of people who could easily have flowed from the pen of Elmore Leonard (if they had been only slightly more zany I would have said Tim Dorsey). Under the control of an equally interesting group of agents from Britain's MI5, this group of misfits adeptly took advantage of the inherent weaknesses of the Abwher (German military intelligence, no that is not an oxymoron) to convince the German high command that the real allied invasion of France would take place at Pas de Calais. This effectively tied up more than 50 German divisions which may well have caused an Allied defeat if they had moved swiftly to Normandy. This is a well told story which supports the adage that, "truth is stranger than fiction". "

    " I really wanted to like this book. Unfortunately, I just couldn't get into it. I got about halfway and the story didn't take off. I was waiting for the plot to develop, and it didn't. Too many characters and he kept referring to them by multiple names. Very confusing. "
