In the summer of 1944, a handpicked group of young GIs—including such future luminaries as Bill Blass, Ellsworth Kelly, Arthur Singer, Victor Dowd, Art Kane, and Jack Masey—landed in France to conduct a secret mission. Armed with truckloads of inflatable tanks, a massive collection of sound-effects records, and more than a few tricks up their sleeves, their job was to create a traveling road show of deception on the battlefields of Europe. The Ghost Army of World War II describes a perfect example of a little-known, highly imaginative, and daring maneuver that helped open the way for the final drive to Nazi Germany. It is a riveting tale told through personal accounts and sketches along the way—ultimately, a story of success against great odds. Learn more during the TRAVEL ITCH RADIO Veterans Day special, Thursday Nov. 9 at 8p EST, when author Richard Beyer visits the show. Listen live on iTunes or BlogTalkRadio.com as Dan Schlossberg, a veteran himself, and co-host Maryellen Nugent Lee interview him live. You can also check out the archived show on the TRAVEL ITCH RADIO Facebook page. This will be show #529 in our 12th season.
