“At the beginning of the Second World War Dennis Wheatley was an internationally famous, best selling author. he was also 42 years old. he wanted passionately to get into the war but initially his efforts were unsuccessful. Then, through a series of introductions and as a result of putting forward some imaginative ideas on how Britain might resist invasion he found himself - to his own astonishment - recruited into a small, highly secret department in the offices of the War cabinet. on 31 December 1941 he became a Deception Planner. The object of the this department, working close to the centre of Britain’s strategy, was to divert the resources of the enemy away from the real Allied operations which were being planned and to direct them instead against imaginary operations devised by Wheatley and his handful of colleagues. Some of these deceptions - such as “The man who never was” and “monty’s double” - have since become well known, but many have not been disclosed until now”.
