Lecture by Dr. Marion Dorsey

[/et_pb_text][et_pb_text _builder_version=”4.4.1″ text_font_size=”20px”]Winning battles requires fighting and supplies, but sometimes tricks can turn the tide in one side’s favor. The Allies considered and implemented a variety of deceptions, sometimes massive ones, against the Axis powers. From the invasion of Sicily to the landings at Normandy, the Allies benefited from lies and deceptions that started before the first shots were fired and spread well beyond the battlefield.

Marion Dorsey is an associate professor of history and a core faculty member in Justice Studies at the University of New Hampshire.[/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][/et_pb_section]
