Summary During World War II, a hand-picked group of American GI's undertook a bizarre mission: create a travelling road show of deception on the battlefields of Europe, with the Nazi German Army as their audience. Using archival footage of this top-secret unit, dozens of still photographs, paintings, and sketches created by "ghost army" soldiers during the war, as well as interviews with veterans of this special unit, The Ghost Army tells their extraordinary story for the first time ever on film and demonstrates the power of creativity and of the WWII soldiers who found a unique way to employ it to save lives.
