Default Ghost army: How a group of artists helped win WWII

Short video

Quote:
WWII is full of stories of valor and heroism. There’s one little known story of brave men and women that many are simply not aware of. They were called the ‘Ghost Army.’ Simply, they were a group of artists that designed things like inflatable tanks and trucks that looked so real, it would fool most anyone, like the Nazi’s.

Cool story. I'm looking forward to the documentary.
