Although the use of Churchill's name is more a marketing ploy than historical fact, this is a fascinating history of 20th-century military deception including double agents, the planting of false intelligence, and the development of the art of camouflage.

It's written in an engaging narrative style that only occasionally strays into dull recitation. Educational and entertaining.
