Let us relate one of the most surprising episodes of the Second World War: the somewhat macabre plot developed by the British, intended to trap the Germans and divert their attention from the planned landing place in Sicily in 1943. This operation baptized "flesh to pate" is the story of the corpse of a simple English citizen who became for the cause that of the soldier W. Martin, bearer of letters signed Lord Mountbatten to General Alexander in which allusion is made to a landing in Greece. Berlin alerted by its espionage services will route its reinforcements to Greece thus allowing the Allied landing in Sicily. An incredible story, and yet true.
