The Ghost Army: Artists of Deception

The Ghost Army Book

Documentary filmmaker Rick Beyer details the true story of an extraordinary U.S. Army unit that used inflatable tanks, sound trucks, and sheer showmanship to stage a traveling road show of deception on the World War II battlefields of Europe.

Rick has spent seven years researching the story. He will share some of the amazing history of this little-known band of deceivers, and show clips from his documentary film on the unit set to premier on PBS next year.

The event is free and open to the public.
