Product Description

This is a 26 slide, highly animated powerpoint presentation on the The United States & WW II - European Theater - FUSAG - The Ghost Army. Each of the slides are editable so you can adjust the presentation to fit your individual needs.

In the final years of World War II, both the Allied and Axis Powers knew that there was no chance of defeating Hitler without cracking his grasp on Western Europe, and both sides knew that Northern France was the obvious target for an amphibious assault.

The German high command assumed the Allies would cross from England to France at the narrowest part of the channel and land at Pas-de-Calais. The Allies instead set their sights some 200 miles to the west. The Allies believed the beaches of Normandy could be taken if the Germans did move their reserve infantry and panzers to Normandy from their garrison in the Pas-de-Calais.

Success would rest on distracting German forces and spreading them too thin across multiple invasion sites. They needed a way to credibly threaten Pas-de-Calais, scaring the Germans into keeping the reserves there and away from the actual battle. The resulting plan, Operation Fortitude, is one of the greatest deceptions ever pulled off.

This presentation covers the following:
