"Operation Mincemeat," which is now available on Netflix, showcases one of the biggest stunts the British army pulled during World War II.

In the film, Colin Firth dresses up as a corpse to fool the Germans. Here’s what really happened. In 1943, Ewen Montagu, who is played by Firth, and the British military misdirected the German military away from the Invasion of Sicily with a dead body for the German forces to find.

On the dead body were documents for the Nazis to find, which suggested there was an invasion of Greece and Sardinia.

The British army then released the body on the Southern coast of Spain, and it was discovered by fisherman. Before the men on the sea returned the body and documents to the British, they notified the Germans.
