The Ghost Army

World War II's Artists of Deception

Inside the 23rd


Who was in The Ghost Army?

We are in the process of creating a master searchable list of people who served in The 23rd Headquarters Special Troops. You can access the list here. This is an ongoing project, so the list may have incomplete or incorrect data. If you notice any errors, or have any suggestions, please email

Some of the documents on which the list is based are available for viewing below.

Interestingly, the list is up to about 1350, significantly more than the 1100 number in the official history. It may contain names of people in the 3132 or the 603rd who did not travel overseas.
