Published by The Folio Society, London, 2004. The books are in excellent (almost like new) condition, with decorated boards. The pages are bright and clean. The books sit in a near fine card slipcase.
The two volumes are the historical account of Allied military deception during the Second World War. The book focuses primarily on the work of Dudley Clarke in the Middle East, whom the author describes as "the master of the game", John Bevan in London, Newman Smith in Washington, and Peter Fleming in the Far East, detailing their work in creating strategic and tactical deceptions for the Allied forces.
The book contains four appendices (listing all of the Allied deception operations, double agents, fictional divisions and regional maps) which, along with the footnotes, account for a fifth of the material.
