* One of the best known was "Tokyo Rose", used by the Japanese. Tokyo Rose was the name given to several english-speaking female broadcasters used by Radio Japan. These broadcasters put out false reports of battle results and other misleading information intended to shake the morale of American soldiers and sailors. * Another well-known form of Propaganda was the successful misinformation used by the Americans prior to D-Day. The Germans believed that the most likely point of invasion was the Pas de Calais area. The Germans also feared General Patton as the Allies best and most dangereous battlefield commander. The Allies used these preconceptions to great effect. They created a false 3rd Army, with Patton in command. Then, through falsified radio traffic, press covered visits, and falsified documentation "accidently" made available to known German agents, gave the impression that the 3rd Army was training to invade Europe at Pas de Calais. Even during the D-Day invasion of Normandy, the deception was continued. Because of this deception, the Germans kept a large part of their forces in reserve and prepared to respond to a Pas de Calais invasion until it was too late to successfully repel the Normandy invasion. Printed papers were often dropped from airplanes, radio stations often beamed music and messages to soldiers. "Tokyo Rose" was well known because the Japanese were broadcasting music that the Allied troops enjoyed, then she would get on the radio and talk about all kinds of subjects that were intended to discourage the troops.
