Film screening of The Ghost Army followed by Q&A with author and filmmaker Rick Beyer and 95 year-old Harper student Bernie Bluestein, World War II veteran and former member of The Ghost Army.
Just days after D-Day in June 1944, a handpicked group of young GIs landed in France on a secret mission. Armed with rubber tanks, fake artillery, and more than a few tricks up their sleeves, their job was to stage a traveling road show of deception.
Author and documentary filmmaker Rick Beyer brings the daring exploits of The Ghost Army to life with video clips of veterans, WWII footage, photos, maps, and a life-size inflatable Sherman tank!
