The Ghost Army

We heard from documentarian and author Rick Beyer about the brave combat con-men of World War II, the soldiers of The Ghost Army

In the summer of 1944, a hand-picked group of artists, architects and engineers landed in France to take part in a secret mission. Using stealth and deception, they worked to mislead enemy forces about the strength and location of American troops. While the successful efforts of this vital unit remained top secret for more than 50 years, these soldiers were recently recognized with a Congressional Gold Medal.
