Operation Mincemeat

Operation Mincemeat

Operation Mincemeat was a successful deception campaign planned for the allied invasion of Sicily in World War 2. It involved the British deliberately dumping a corpse on a beach in Spain with fake documents stating that the Allies were going to land an invasion force in Greece and Sardinia instead of Sicily. This saved the lives of thousands of allied soldiers and allowed for an easier take-down of Mussolini.
