I chose this rating because it is a fantastic work and portrays the use and wackiness of the Double Cross system with a wealth of sources. The book revolves around 5-6 different spies, keeping the text from going stagnant. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys World War II, especially in things that may be considered forgotten details, or someone who enjoys learning about the War but not individual troop movements. The tone is upbeat, often humorous, and does not delve into bore. I enjoyed that the spotlight shone on the figures that Macintyre chose, whether they played into Operation Bodyguard or not. While many agents were involved, those brought to the center by Macintyre truly enrich the stories involved.
