The Greatest Act Of Deception in WWII

(YouTube link)

Operation Mincemeat was a elaborately engineered plan to deceive the Axis about the Allied invasion from the Mediterranean Sea. You won’t believe the lengths the British went to in order to bring a fictional soldier to life, despite the possibility that it might not work. Warning: contains one picture of a dead body. -via Buzzfeed


the narrator says one of the people involved was called "Cholmondeley". I can't speak for the gentleman in question but that surname is more usually pronounced "Chom Lee". https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4NTLkJqpC-A
It's a very strangely pronounced surname with no clues as to how it should be said, but amusing to hear the narrator say "Chol Mon Delay". (He could of course be right in this case?)
