Operation Sweater

This was a US deception plan, originally designated as 'Stab' (ii), to cover the 'Torch' assault on French North-West Africa (October/November 1942).

As part of this deception, the men of Major General George S. Patton’s Western Task Force, embarking in ports along the USA’s eastern seaboard for delivery to the Atlantic coast of French Morocco, were told that they were destined for amphibious training on the coast of the island of Haiti in the Caribbean Sea.
