SOLD OUT – Members’ Exclusive Talk: Author Rick Beyer on The Ghost Army of World War II

PLEASE NOTE: This event is now sold out. An encore talk with Rick Beyer has been added on Friday, March 17 at noon. Please click here to register for Friday’s talk.

In the summer of 1944, a handpicked group of GIs landed in France to conduct a secret mission. Armed with rubber tanks, fake artillery, and more than a few tricks up their sleeves, they put on a traveling road show of deception on the battlefields of Europe, with the German Army as their audience. From Normandy to the Rhine, the 1,100 men, known as the Ghost Army, conjured up phony convoys, phantom divisions, and make-believe headquarters to fool the enemy about the strength and location of American units. Unpack the secrets of the Ghost Army with author and filmmaker Rick Beyer followed by a Swinging Social with the Retro Radio Dolls.

* Doors open at 5:30 pm with cash bar

Talk registration includes access to the Swinging Social with the Retro Radio Dolls immediately following. Or register separately to attend just the Swinging Social.
