Almost 1100 men fought World War II as members of the US “Ghost Army“, the result of an uncommon lateral thinking in war strategy. Created for “tactical deception”, this unit had the task to deceive and confuse the enemy on the entity of US divisions, their resources and their movements, through the employment of inflatable tanks, soundtracks, fake radio transmissions and further camouflages. In an effort between military strategy and acting, more than twenty battlefields were staged between 1944 and 1945, starting in Normandy and ending in the Rhine River Valley. The members recruited (known as ghost soldiers) were students from New York and Philadelphia art schools, architects, stage designers, advertisers and sound technicians.

The glossary gives a brief overview of the fundamental considerations and helps provide answers to the most frequently asked questions. Annual figures We try to provide start and end dates for each project. Where start dates are concerned, we differentiate between design and the start of construction. The chronological list is based on the start year (where known).
