Video Book Club – Beach Read Edition: Operation Mincemeat

Posted 07.13.2010

In this week’s VBC, I’m offering a summer beach read suggestion for those who like mystery, intrigue and spy craft thrown in with their leadership insights. Operation Mincemeat is a true story that reads like a novel. It’s the World War II story of how some ingenious British intelligence officers came up with a complicated and macabre plan to trick the Germans into moving their defenses away from the intended location of an Allied invasion.

It’s a fun and fascinating read that shows how important characteristics like persistence and ingenuity can be to the practice of leadership. Take a look at the video for other thoughts on why you might like this book.
