We did a documentary on this guy at work. These facts above don’t even scratch the surface of the level of awesome his operations managed to achieve. Like, what they close over in that last caption box is an entire fake operation called Operaton Fortitude where they created fake tanks and planes and convinced the Germans that there was a massive field army, led by none other than George Patton, preparing to invade any day.
I just read his Wikipedia article and it is pretty great.
Love how the Allies were all, Eh, whatever, until he was actually embedded with the Nazis…
