00-Origins: Operation Mincemeat

In July of 1943, as Allied forces planned desperately for Mediterranean access into Europe, Britain's Naval Intelligence were spearheading an intrepid operation, a bait-and-switch of colossal consequence. Commander Ian Fleming, serving as personal assistant to the Director of Naval Intelligence, helped to encourage the intricate planning for what would soon become Operation Mincemeat. In this episode, 00-Chapman, our resident military expert, cracks cover and leads us through a tour of this incredible story. We also offer our thoughts on the recent film adaption, directed by John Madden and starring Colin Firth, Kelly Macdonald, Matthew MacFadyen and Jason Isaacs.
