About The Book
Deception on the battlefield is surely as old as warfare itself. The examples stretch from the very beginnings of recorded military history �Pharaoh Ramses II�s campaign against the Hittites in 1294 B.C.�to modern times, when technology has placed a stunning array of devices into the arsenals of military commanders. Military historians often underestimate the importance of deception in warfare. This book is the first to fully describe its value. Jon Latimer shows how simple some tricks have been, but also how technology has increased the range and subtlety of what is possible �bogus radio traffic, virtual images, even smell. He draws examples from land, sea, and air to show how great commanders have always had, as Winston Churchill put it, that indispensable “element of legerdemain, an original and sinister touch, which leaves the enemy puzzled as well as beaten.”
