Patton's D-Day decoy invasion force threatened all of Germany!

What was General Patton doing on D-Day? Where? Operation Quicksilver. On June 6 1944, Patton was sitting on the shores of England at the head of a fake army. He was part of the largest and most successful deception operation of World War II. Operation Quicksilver was part of a larger deception plan called Operation Fortitude South/Operation Bodyguard. The plan was used to cloak the build up of the Allied Army and disguise the destination of the invasion.
