High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles Operation Mincemeat was
a successful British deception plan during World War II. As part of
the widespread deception plan Operation Barclay to cover the
intended invasion of Italy from North Africa, Mincemeat helped to
convince the German high command that the Allies planned to invade
Greece and Sardinia in 1943 instead of Sicily, the actual
objective. This was accomplished by persuading the Germans that
they had, by accident, intercepted "top secret" documents giving
details of Allied war plans. The documents were attached to a
corpse deliberately left to wash up on a beach in Punta Umbria in
Spain. The story was used as the plot in Duff Cooper's 1950 novel
Operation Heartbreak, but revealed as a true story in the 1953 book
The Man Who Never Was.
