Intrigues, Lies and Deceptions: Allied Strategic Deception During the Second World War with Michael McNaught
September 25 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm$5.00
It took an untold number of weapons to win World War II: tanks, submachine guns, flame throwers, rifles, and grenades. But one of the Allies’ most powerful weapons was the art of deception. Elaborate plots, phantom armies, fictious radio transmissions, controlled leaks, double agents and other clever ruses spun a deadly web of deception for the enemy. Local historian Michael McNaught will unravel some of the greatest military secrets and strategies taking place off the battlefield at this fascinating talk.
