Garbo: The Spy who Saved D-Day
This is a reproduction of the MI5 file on Juan Maria Pujol, the Spanish double-agent known as Garbo. Garbo fed German military intelligence with false information about the Normandy landings, leading them to believe that the attack was a diversionary one, with the real one taking place at Calais.
