Book Beginnings on Friday: Operation Mincemeat

Book Beginnings on Friday is a meme hosted by Katy from A Few More Pages. Anyone can participate; just share the opening sentence of your current read, making sure that you include the title and author so others know what you're reading.

Operation Mincemeat: How a Dead Man and a Bizarre Plan Fooled the Nazis and Assured an Allied Victory by Ben MacIntyre
"José Antonio Rey María had no intention of making history when he rowed out into the Atlantic from the coast of Andalusia in southwest Spain on April 30, 1943."
I imagine pretty often complete bystanders get caught up in things when spies are about. As they often are during wars.

Yep. Sometimes you have no idea where a simple action will lead you. Sounds like a good one! Here's mine: http://myreadersblock.blogspot.com/2010/12/book-beginnings-on-friday_17.html
