VIRTUAL TALK: “The Man Who Never Was: Operation Mincemeat” with Mark Schmidt
May 21, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pmFREE
Our First-Ever Virtual Talk!
THE MAN WHO NEVER WAS: OPERATION MINCEMEAT
Executive Director Mark Schmidt
Wars are usually won by actions of strength, bravery and guile. But, sometimes, they’re won by great feats of imagination. Take Operation Mincemeat. It was one of the most successful single deceptions of World War II–and probably the luckiest. The mission: convince the Nazis the Allies would land in Sardinia instead of Sicily. The masterminds: two completely different British agents, with an assist from Ian Fleming, a cooperative coroner–and a corpse. Together, they created a daring deception that was believable enough to fool Adolf Hitler himself. Join us for our first-ever virtual talk–and learn how Major William Martin, “The Man Who Never Was,” helped win the war!
