Deception During WWII
About the Book
Operation Trickery is a book or historical fiction about World War II. It is intended to present another side of a savage war that killed millions and destroyed much of Europe. War is often complicated yet simple. Some battles were won or lost by the smallest error or deception. Some incidents were classified until 2005. Some rather horrible incidents were humorous in their intent and result. The book is about civilian soldiers thrown into battle sometimes with no purpose but to obey orders. It is about those decisions and quick responses that often are the difference between life and death. The characters are typical of most soldiers during the war and wish only to stop fighting and go home to their sweethearts and loved ones.
