1. D-Day Deception: Operation Fortitude and the Normandy Invasion. Westport, CT: Praeger Security International, 2007.

According to Kahn, Intelligencer 17.1 (Winter-Spring 2009), the author concludes that the Allied deception operation was "not as vital as often claimed." Springer, Army History 70 (Winter 2009), says this "work provides a ... thorough examination of intelligence and counterintelligence operations surrounding the Normandy invasion. She demonstrates the utility of the Fortitude campaigns without falling into the trap of presenting her topic as the sole, or even the primary, reason for the Allied victory. Rather, she presents a detailed explanation of how the campaign was carried out, linking it to an assessment of its effectiveness."
