  • Fortitude phantom divisions

    Anyone know of any links or information sources pertaining to the phantom US Army divisons in FUSAG? (these didnt actually exist, but were part of the DDay deception plan. Some actually had division patches issued to personel, and that is what im really interested in. I have the 135th Airborne, which is a really cool looking black widow spider. I know there were others.

    Any hints or insight?

    You mean 14th US Army, the main component of FUSAG.
    Here is a site that gives some great info and even has all the unit patches on the main page.

    Scientists have announced they've discovered a cure for apathy. However no one has shown the slightest bit of interest !!

      Interesting site. My bookmarks once again grows. :thumb: Also interesting is that the 50 ID emblem in blue & silver became the Nato Star.

      Cheers!

            No wonder Hitler was so convinced. He must have been a National Geographic subscriber.
