During World War II, a hand-picked gorup of American G.I.s undertook a bizarre mission: to create a traveling road show of deception on the battlefields of Europe, with the Nazi German Army as their audience.  The U.S. 23rd Headquarters Special Troops used inflatable rubber tanks, sound trucks, and dazzling performance art to bluff the enemy again and again.  This little-known unit’s knack for trickery was crucial to Allied success in World War II, but their too-secret mission was kept quiet for nearly 50 years after the war’s end.

Join us for a screening of “The Ghost Army”, a documtary by Rick Beyer.

The screening will be followed immeditately by a Q+A with Ghost Army veteran, Gazo Nemeth, a resident of Ft. Myers.
