The biblical account of Gideon. The ancient story of the Trojan horse. Deceptive techniques have been used in war through the ages. But while the principles have changed very little, the technology behind fooling the enemy has evolved dramatically. Paul B. Janeczko's fascinating chronology focuses on the American Civil War, World Wars I and II, and the Korean War, the Vietnam War, and the Gulf Wars to reveal evolving attitudes toward the use and effectiveness of deceptive operations. Find out the secret plan behind the invasion of Normandy and the details of General Schwarzkopf's "Hail Mary play" during the Gulf War, among many other strategies and maneuvers designed to pull the wool over enemies' eyes. Back matter includes source notes, a bibliography, and an index.

Reviews

For kids who enjoy reading about war, this is catnip. --Booklist This engaging, well-written text flows smoothly with good transitions among ideas...this is a dependable, interesting title that would be a useful addition for middle school libraries, or for high school libraries with large populations of low-level or struggling readers. --VOYA The intent here...is to offer fascinating case studies in the way deceptive strategy augments (or even supplants) fire power, and Janeczko carries the day. --Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books A top selection for those serious about military studies. --School Library Journal
