Operation Mincemeat:

Operation Mincemeat: How a dead Man and a Bizarre Plan Fooled the Nazis and Assured an Allied Victory

One way to ensure an enjoyable spy plot is to have it written by a former Naval Intelligence Officer in the British Forces.  It is even more enjoyable when the plot, or Operation, actually happened and was helped to origin by Ian Fleming.  Operation Mincemeat relied on expert timing, and doubly twisted plots in order to make the Nazis believe the Allies would not invade Sicily, when it was the most logical place to land.  The book is based on actual historical documents, many revealed here for the first time.  I believe this book could also be used as a special mission in a Flames of War game, the details are so well outlined.  Written with characters so outlandish they can only exist in real life, Operation Mincemeat is an engrossing historical thriller.   I highly recommend this book.
