Description

    • Imported from USA.

    “The book presses ever forward down a path of historical marvels
    and astonishing facts. The effect is like a master class that’s
    accessible to anyone, and Agent Garbo often reads as though it
    were written in a single, perfect draft.”—The Atlantic

    Before he remade himself as the master spy known as Garbo, Juan
    Pujol was nothing more than a Barcelona poultry farmer. But as
    Garbo, he turned in a masterpiece of deception that changed the
    course of World War II. Posing as the Nazis’ only reliable spy
    inside England, he created an imaginary million-man army,
    invented armadas out of thin air, and brought a vast network of
    fictional subagents to life. The scheme culminated on June 6,
    1944, when Garbo convinced the Germans that the Allied forces
    approaching Normandy were just a feint—the real invasion would
    come at Calais. Because of his brilliant trickery, the Allies
    were able to land with much less opposition and eventually push
    on to Berlin.

    As incredible as it sounds, everything in Agent Garbo is true,
    based on years of archival research and interviews with Pujol’s
    family. This pulse-pounding thriller set in the shadow world of
    espionage and deception reveals the shocking reality of spycraft
    that occurs just below the surface of history.

    “Stephan Talty’s unsurpassed research brings forth one of the
    war’s greatest agents in a must-read book for those who think
    they know all the great World War II stories.” —Gregory Freeman,
    author of The Forgotten 500
