Ghost Army Exhibit
Comes to the Nevada Museum of Art
Activated on January 20, 1944, the 23rd Headquarters Special Troops,
known as the “Ghost Army,” was the first mobile, multimedia, tactical
deception unit in US Army history. Consisting of an authorized strength
of 82 officers and 1,023 men, this unique and top-secret unit was
capable of simulating two whole divisions and used visual, sonic, and
radio deception to fool German forces during World War II’s final year.
The Ghost Army exhibit features inflatable military pieces,
historical narrative text panels detailing unit operations, profiles of
unit officers, archival photography and sketches and uniforms from unit
officers. Read more at
