Popov is considered one of Ian Fleming 's primary inspirations for the character of James Bond. Popov was born into a wealthy family and was a practicing lawyer at the start of the war. He held a great aversion to Nazism , and in , infiltrated the Abwehr , Germany 's military intelligence service, which considered him a valuable asset due to his business connections in France and the United Kingdom. Popov provided the Germans with misleading and inaccurate information for much of the war. Deceptions in which he participated included Operation Fortitude , which sought to convince German military planners that the Allied invasion of Europe would take place in Calais , not Normandy , thereby diverting hundreds of thousands of German troops and increasing the likelihood that Operation Overlord would succeed.

Fast paced, intriguing true story about a significant time in world history from one person's perspective. I spent a lot time and effort looking for this book, in China's book sites and many libraries, once thought can never be learned dusko popov's life experiences, so now can find this book, I'm very happy and grateful.
Although blemish is inevasible, for the old books. All in all, in the future I will often purchase in china can't find books through Amazon. The book I received is missing forty pages from 40 t0 I allreaday communicate this and the answer was that I return the book to be refunded. Quite frankly I want a book with all the pages, not the money of the book. Apart from the trouble of returnig the book I do not understamd what use are you doing to the book without forty 40 pages.
