Great documentary about a great man.
16 January 2014 | by rudimartSee all my reviews

I absolutely loved the movie. It was entertaining and mixing Hollywood spy movies with the real narrative was brilliant. Prior to viewing this movie, I had no idea this man existed and the role he played in making the D-day landings a success. He acted solely out of the motivation to save civilization from the horrors that a Nazi victory would have brought. Had it not been for him the D Day landings would likely have been a disaster and the war would have dragged on for perhaps two more years and maybe Hitler would have had time to make more rockets or even atomic bombs. This man single handedly fooled the Germans so many times and even had them believe that the D-day landings were only a diversion but were so successful that the allies cancelled the real invasion at Calais. After the war he still received money from the grateful Germans for his invaluable service. He never speaks in the movie but befittingly does visit the graves at Normandy. An informative and well presented documentary about a man who sought little glory for himself and yet was responsible for saving so many lives and turning the course of the war.
