Secret codes, ciphers, strategic misdirection, and more: Deception was one of the most powerful weapons utilized by the Allies in World War II.

Here are some of the amazing tricks and leaked misinformation—many revealed for the first time—that helped lure the Axis powers into false, even dangerous, positions.

The collection of incredible codes, surreptitious spies, and false battle plans is made all the more enjoyable by Thaddeus Holt’s masterful writing, as well as the accompanying photos. His novel-like storytelling includes many illuminating profiles of the war’s central figures and the roles they played in specific deceptive operations.

"You've heard of business ethics, medical ethics, even journalistic ethics? Spying ethics predictably took a little longer to come in from the cold.

Yet Fair Play could well become the anchoring text of a new field. As sharp as a stiletto-fitted umbrella, as tough as can be, Olson proves remarkably humane about how to balance dirty tricks with high ideals. He brings startling clarity to issues of official lying and worse." --Carlin Romano, Philadelphia Inquirer, Sunday, February 11, 2007

Looks unused but the Preface, Acknowledgments and title of Introduction have margin notes. The remainder of the text is clean.

 Hardcover in Dust Jacket.

Pozner, a Soviet TV commentator perhaps best known for cohosting (with Phil Donahue) a televised U.S./Soviet "public meeting," is what the American Right fears most--a charming, erudite member of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union who speaks with a strong American accent.

In this book, Pozner explains how he came to be who he is, taking the reader from his birth in German-occupied Paris to his formative years in New York City in the 1950s at the beginning of the Red Scare, to his arrival in the Soviet Union during the final years of Stalin.
