Operation Mincemeat

Deception, the greatest weapon in war

It's 1943. The Allies are determined to break Hitler's grip on occupied Europe and plan an all-out attack on Sicily, but they face an impossible challenge - how to protect a massive invasion from massacre. It falls to two remarkable intelligence officers, Ewen Montagu and Charles Cholmondeley, to dream the most inspired and improbable disinformation strategy of the war using the most unlikely of secret agents: a dead man. Colin Firth and Matthew Macfadyen star in the true story of wartime deception that changed the course of the Second World War.
