Hot on the heels of 'Churchill's Wizards', I've just been advised of another new book about WWII which mentions Dennis Wheatley - 'Deceiving Hitler - Double-cross & Deception in World War II' by Terry Crowdy. Published by Osprey Publications on 3rd September this year.

The index shows a number of references to DW but I haven't seen a hard copy of the book yet.

I'll put the usual details on the main website in due course.

It looks as if DW's wartime activities are becoming quite topical !

All best to everyone
Charles

had a trawl thu this in the local tesco ( :-D ) and have to say it ain't to complimentary on old DW. describes his stories as ludicrous. was going to bu it but at £17 for a few breif not very nice mentions didn't seem worth it.

CHURCHILL'S WIZARDS is very complimentary about THE DECEPTION PLANNERS, even if Rankin doesn't seem to like DW's fiction. I'm amazed that no-one has seen fit to reprint THE DECEPTION PLANNERS. Given the growing interest in the subject, you'd think that any publisher of WWII related subjects would jump at it.
