Operation Mincemeat


On the morning of 30 April 1943, the body of Captain (Acting Major) William Martin, Royal Marines, washed ashore on the Spanish coast, near the town of Huelva. “Major Martin” carried with him a number of highly classified – and false – documents identifying Greece and Sardinia, rather than the obvious choice of Sicily (Operation Torch), as the next Allied objectives after the successful invasion of North Africa. Spanish authorities made the documents available to German military intelligence, who, due to the effort put into giving the Major a believable identity, accepted the ruse completely.

Adolf Hitler was so convinced of the veracity of the intelligence that he overruled Benito Mussolini, and ordered reinforcements sent to Greece, Sardinia and Corsica. Two of the panzer divisions diverted came from the Eastern Front, which had the unintended consequence of reducing German combat strength in the Kursk salient.

On 9 July 1943, the Allies invaded Sicily; the Germans, remaining convinced this invasion was a feint, kept their focus on Greece and Sardinia, thus reducing the strength available to them in Sicily until it was too late.
