This unknown cadaver helped the Allies to invade Europe via Sicily - an elaborate ruse to redirect Hitler's armies to other Italian cities. He was called Major Martin, he had a briefcase full of documents, fake ID, etc. and the body was put to sea to be found by Spanish fishermen. Britain demanded the documents returned, but Spain first let the Germans have a good look at the documents. The ruse worked, thanks to the man who never existed.
