The title of the book comes from a Churchill quote: "In wartime, the truth is so precious that she should always be attended by a bodyguard of lies". This book details the intelligence war between the Allies and the Axis during the build up to the Allied invasions in Europe. The amazing lengths to which the Allies went to deceive the Axis forces, and the brilliant work of the Bletchley Park code-breakers in keeping Churchill informed of the Germans' every move is extremely well presented. It is a wonderfully intriguing look behind the scenes.
