According to Wikipedia the Germans held back troops to repel a landing at Calais.

I think the Germans were particularly receptive to this kind of thing. Hitler was the perfect mark. A man who is utterly convinced that he is cleverer than his enemy. The allies just needed to confirm some things he already thought.

The Germans always had data about what was really going on. They just allowed bias to get in the way.
