In the summer of 1944, a handpicked group of young GIs landed in France to conduct a secret mission. Armed with truckloads of inflatable tanks, a massive collection of sound-effects records, and more than a few tricks up their sleeves, they created a traveling road show of deception on the battlefields of Europe, with the German Army as their audience. The Ghost Army is a riveting tale told through personal accounts and sketches. And yes, there will be an inflatable tank on display.
6:00-7:00 p.m. – Pre-lecture coffee and cookie gathering. Meet Rick Beyer before the lecture and see one of the Ghost Army vehicles.
