Operation Copperhead was a small military deception operation run by the British during the Second World War. Conceived by Dudley Clarke, it was intended to mislead German intelligence

#AceHistoryNews – June.25: The German high command expected Montgomery, one of the best-known Allied commanders, to play a key role in any cross-channel bridgehead.

Clarke and the other deception planners reasoned that a high-profile appearance outside England would suggest that an Allied invasion was not imminent
Montgomery in 1943General Bernard Montgomery (pictured) just before the 1944 invasion of Normandy.

An appropriate look-alike was found, M. E. Clifton James, who spent a short time with Montgomery to familiarise himself with the general’s mannerisms. On 26 May, James flew to Gibraltar and then to Algiers, making appearances where the Allies knew German intelligence agents would spot him, but the operation did not appear to have any significant impact on German plans. James later wrote a book about the operation, I Was Monty’s Double, which was adapted into a film, with James in the lead role……

The House of Plantagenet (1154–1485) was the royal house of all the English kings from Henry II to R ichard III, including the Angevin kings and the houses of Lancaster and York – @AceHistoryNews

Henry II of EnglandHenry II

#AceHistoryNews – May.29: In addition to the traditional judicial, feudal and military roles of the king, the Plantagenets had duties to the realm that were underpinned by a sophisticated justice system.

They were often forced to agree to constraints on royal power, such as Magna Carta, in return for financial and military support. During their reigns, a distinct national identity was shaped by conflict with the French, Scots, Welsh and Irish, and by the establishment of English as the primary language. In the 15th century, the Plantagenets were defeated in France in the Hundred Years’ War and beset with social, political and economic problems. Revolts were triggered by politics and by the denial of freedoms.

English nobles raised private armies, engaged in private feuds and openly defied Henry VI. Rivalry between the Yorkists and Lancastrians erupted into the Wars of the Roses.

After Richard III’s death ended the reign of the Plantagenets, Henry VII founded the Tudor dynasty.

SNIPPETS OF HISTORY NEWS: Battle of Hulluch: Early example of chemical war fare the Gassing of the Irish in 1916 that happened on this day at Easter and could have changed Irish history – @AceHistoryNews

#AceHistoryNews – April.27: Battle of Hulluch: Gassing of the Irish in 1916_89438064_trenchescr.jpgThe Battle of Hulluch was an early example of the devastating effect of chemical warfare.

A thick, cloudy, lethal gas crept across the murky, moon-like landscape.

This was no man’s land. It was 27 April 1916, close to the village of Hulluch in northern France.

A slow moving gas attack would soon leave hundreds of entrenched Irishmen dead.

The Battle of Hulluch was an early example of the devastating effect of chemical warfare, then still in its infancy.

Yet the events at Hulluch are comparatively unknown and its significance is often overlooked.
Rebellion at Easter

Another reason the details of the gas attacks at Hulluch have been partially lost over time is that it took place at the same time as the Easter Rising in Dublin.

The rising would radically alter the history of Ireland, from where many of Hulluch’s victims hailed.
