Summary Even in wartime, it isn't easy to get hold of a body, particularly one which must look as if it drowned recently. That was the challenge facing British Intelligence Officer Ewen Montagu, and on his success hinged one of the most ingenious deceptions of World War II and the lives of thousands of Allied soldiers. After the war, the story of the man who never was became a bestselling book and film. But the identity of the body is continue to intrigue in battle for more than 60 years. Montagu always claimed that official secrecy and respect for the dead man's family made it impossible for him to say anything. But now it seems that he may have been playing a double game, anxious both to mask and darkest secret and to leave clue as is to who the body really was
