Deadmen's Secrets: Operation Bodyguard: D-Day Deception

The Allies knew that to be successful on D-Day they must disguise where they would land; so they created an elaborate system of hoax and deception named Operation Bodyguard to fool the Germans who were waiting. There were fake armies, dummy landing craft and false intelligence, all designed to keep Hitler guessing about the true objective of the Allied landings.
