    • Brilliant book with interesting facts. I recommend it as a tour guide in Normandy. Illustrations are brilliant. It is a nice story to know


    • Imagine, captured German maps showing 15,000 Allied troops in a location that there were no troops. Imagine, Nazi’s keeping their soldiers out of position opposite what they think are thousand of enemy troops. Imagine, they can hear the US tanks lining up on the opposite riverbank. They can even here the soldiers yell “Hey Private! Put out that cigarette! There’s gas tanks over there!” Imagine, Nazi civilian spys transmitting radio broadcasts to Berlin that they overheard conversat [...]


    • My husband Jack F. Sweeney, Jr. was one of those 19-year-olds (a volunteer) who was part of the 3133rd Signal Service Company -- one of only two Ghost Armies -- fighting in Italy. They were actually Army Signal Corps diguised as a tank company. Their M-10 tank destroyers had dummy guns and huge loudspeakers mounted on them.

    • I was interested in this book because it fit in well with a course I teach. However, the e-book version had numerous blank pages (apparently wherever there was a picture) and as a result quite a bit of the text was missing. I'll try to find a printed version, since what I could read was interesting and well written. I'd give the content 4 stars, but the e-book implementation gets 0 stars


    • Engaging tale of a group of artists who helped the Allies win WWII through sophisticated visual and aural deception in the ETO. I love spycraft stories of how people create convincing but totally fake realities. These heroes did just that as a cohesive unit amid great danger. Alumni of the group include artist Ellsworth Kelly and late fashion icon Bill Blass.


    • I already knew most of the story from watching all or most of the PBS program regarding the excellent work that did in the war. This book filled in many details and characters along with their entertaining sketches. I reduce the stars because of the presentation. I'm not certain which came first, program or book but it looks like it was program. For some much better written details on not these, but other allied deception operations in the Second World War read Ben McIntyre's books.
