Ghost Army Webinar: Operation Fortitude and The Ghost ARmy
Two brilliant deceptions helped win the war in Europe: Operation Fortitude, a British plan to mislead the Germans about D-Day – and – the Ghost Army, an American unit that duped the Germans right on the battlefield starting a week AFTER D-Day. Many assume they are one in the same. In fact, they are completely different. Yet, there are fascinating connections. This webinar with Stephen Ambrose historian Rick Beyer details the links between the two, and explores why both are closely associated with General George Patton – but for very different reasons.
