This declassified WWII report offers a detailed look at the Allied campaign to deceive the Nazis about the immanent attack on Normandy. As the conflict in Europe wore on, the Germans braced for an amphibious assault on France. The only question was where and when the Allies would strike. This required an intricate misinformation campaign to throw the Nazis off the scent. The objective of Operation Fortitude was to persuade the enemy that the long-awaited landings would take place in the Pas-de-Calais, and that any attack in Normandy would be nothing more than a diversionary feint that could be safely ignored. Hundreds of bogus agent reports were manufactured, an entire US Army Group was invented, false radio signals transmitted, and inflatable tanks, dummy bombers built of balsa wood and canvas landing craft were positioned where they could be photographed by the Luftwaffe. The elaborate ruse suggested an imminent amphibious assault from Dover, across the shortest stretch of the English Channel. Operation Fortitude was an extraordinary success. In this volume, the classified official history of the entire operation, written by Roger Hesketh as head of the team of D-Day deception specialists, has been declassified and released.

'This is a truly refreshing, captivating and important book that shifted my perception on a topic I thought I knew! A must read.' Steven Bartlett, entrepreneur and host of 'The Diary of a CEO' 'It hooked me right in . . . A fantastic book.' Chis Evans 'Entertaining. Engaging. Educating.' Professor Damian Hughes, co-host of the 'High Performance' podcast ____________________________________________ Resilience is the buzzword of the moment. We're told that if we have it, our lives will be happy and successful ones. If we don't, we need to acquire it. But what if the version of resilience we've been peddled is a myth? Here, Sunday Times bestselling author Bruce Daisley demolishes a concept that has spawned a multi-million pound industry of books, workshops and courses, exposing the highly questionable science it rests on. In its place he outlines a very different approach to good mental health that embraces the latest science and research. Offering empirically tested advice, Fortitude sets out a practical path to greater self-confidence and courage for us all. _____________________________________________ 'Something I never knew I needed to read but I'm so glad I did, its opened up a whole angle of thinking.' Nadiya Hussain 'A fascinating and important pushback against the narrow, joy-eroding version of 'resilience' that would leave us to sink or swim alone, Fortitude is an indispensable guide to a more energising, human, and effective approach to working and thriving in a post-pandemic world.' Oliver Burkeman, author of 'Four Thousand Weeks'
Operation Fortitude tells the thrilling tale of an ingenious decption that changed the course of the Second World War. The Story is one of intrigue, drama, and good fortune, practically a Hollywood script. It is the tale of double agents, fake radio transmissions and dummy invasion craft.
WINNER OF THE ANDRE SIMON AWARD 2021 ___________________ 'I love Dee Rettali's baking – she is obsessed with flavour. A bold and beautiful book' DIANA HENRY The 90 recipes in this book are all about beautiful, natural flavours from quality ingredients like fruits and spices. Dee Rettali is an artisan baker who, over a lifetime of baking, has honed her recipes to bring out intense flavour using forgotten craftsmanship. Dee's cakes, created for her bakery – Fortitude Bakehouse in London – are a world away from generic cakes loaded with sugar or artificial flavours. Many of her recipes are incredibly simple one-bowl mixes, brought together by hand and with no need for fancy kitchen equipment. The batter can be baked then or, to heighten the natural flavours and reduce sweetness further, left to slightly ferment in the fridge. This technique allows you to prep ahead and simply bake the cake when you want it. Some other recipes use a sourdough-like starter as a base to which any combination of seasonal flavours can be added. Dee has roots in both Ireland and Morocco that have inspired the unique flavour combinations in her bakes, such as: · White grape and rosemary cake · Marrakeshi mint and orange peel sourdough loaf cake · Blueberry and lime little buns · Turmeric custard and roast pear brioche buns · Chilli-soaked date and oat loaf cake This is a cutting-edge way of baking and at the same time it has antecedents in Dee's past. Growing up in rural Ireland, seasonal and no-waste baking was simply a way of life. This book brings this back to life in a thoroughly modern way. ___________________ 'This isn't just another book about baking; it's a whole new way of approaching it' SUNDAY TELEGRAPH
