Description
During World War II, the U.S. 23rd Headquarters Special Troops created a traveling road show of deception on the battlefields of Europe, with the Nazi German Army as their audience. They used inflatable rubber tanks, sound trucks, and dazzling performance art to bluff the enemy again and again, often right along the front lines. This little-known unit's knack for trickery was crucial to Allied success in World War II, but their top-secret mission was kept quiet for nearly 50 years after the war's end. Using archival footage, still photographs, paintings, and sketches by the soldiers, this program tells the story of these battlefield illusions and the talented young men, many recruited from art schools, who used their creativity to save lives.
