Noch acht Wochen, nachdem die Invasion der Alliierten tatsächlich schon stattgefunden hat, warten 22 deutsche Divisionen auf den vermeintlichen Hauptangriff. Vergeblich. In die Irre geführt hat sie »Garbo«: Als einer ihrer wichtigsten Quellen in England hat der Agent die Deutschen überzeugt, dass die Landung erst noch bei Calais bevorstehe. Hitler werden Pujols Meldungen direkt vorgelegt, und die Deutschen vertrauen ihm weiter. Was die deutsche Führung nicht weiß: Pujol ist der wichtigste Doppelagent des britischen Geheimdienstes und spielt eine entscheidende Rolle bei der Operation »Fortitude«, dem Täuschungsmanöver der Alliierten, mit dem die Deutschen über den Zeitpunkt und den Ort der Landung der Alliierten in die Irre geführt werden sollten. Die Briten nennen Pujol »Garbo«, in Anklang an die Schauspielerin Greta Garbo. Aber wer ist dieser größte Schauspieler des Krieges wirklich?

D-Day, 6 June 1944, the day on which the Allies landed on the beaches of Normandy with the intention of reclaiming mainland Europe from German occupation. The significance of the operation has captured the collective imagination to become the defining moment of World War Two and represents the ending to the struggles of the early twentieth century. D-Day in Numbers follows the course of the war in Europe from 1939 through to the D-Day landings and their aftermath, taking in the most poignant events and looking at each through the numbers involved. Each number signifies an important moment within a larger story as they are explained in the context of the surrounding events. And with the vast amount of planning that went into the execution of such an ambitious operation, the numbers involved are staggering, surprising and often inspiring. Broken down into chapters that set the scene of the war in Europe so far, the planning and preparation of D-Day, the landings, the battles and the aftermath. Discover the numbers that promised to change the balance of power in Europe, and indeed, the world, as Deliverance Day, 1944 got underway.

At 10.15 a.m. on Saturday 3 June 1944, a shaft of sunlight fell across my board, sending a brilliant white reflection into my eyes. Bother, I thought, now the ink will dry too quickly ... Moving so that the shadow of my head covered my work I became aware that Joe Smith and a military officer had entered the hangar and were approaching the Chief Draughtsman s office ... Stella Rutter, the first woman employed in the Drawing Office of Supermarine, would that evening play the role of hostess at the farewell party that generals Eisenhower and Montgomery held on the eve of D-Day for the most senior commanding officers British, American and Canadian involved in the landings. Her strict Edwardian upbringing had taught Stella to mix with older people and keep quiet about anything she overheard. It was this naturally security-conscious attitude that led to her remarkable involvement in the Second World War. In these pages, Stella recounts her war story. After leaving art college, she obtained a post in the Drawing Office of HMS Excellent, Portsmouth. A year later she was commandeered to work for the Technical Publications section of Supermarine, the designers of the Spitfire. Then in June 1944 she was recommended as the right person to create an atmosphere of normality to relax the assembled officers at a gathering in a Nissen hut in the forest of Hursley Park on the eve of the invasion of Normandy. Seventy years on she is now at liberty to share her experiences.
