Show profiles master of camouflage: Article about History’s Mysteries ‘The War Illusionist’ documentary that aired on the History Channel. Got to see this last night at our committee meeting as our president was involved and stars quite a bit in the programme.

An excellent documentary about how English Magician Jasper Maskelyne helped in WW2, he setup an experimental camouflage team and using his magical knowledge ultimatley helped the allies gain victory in North Africa. I won’t spoil it all but I thought the best bit was his use of Black Art principles to help hide the Suez Canal! Get to see this if you can. Also Hollywood have plans to make a big movie from this story, and in a bizzare casting decision Tom Cruise will be playing the part of Maskelyne.
