The testimony of the surviving members is every bit as vivid as the astonishing archival film footage, much of it in color, and the exquisite charcoal drawings and watercolors created by the soldiers when they weren't painting fake insignia for their uniforms, or using bulldozers to mess up a fake encampment dotted with those inflatable M-4 tanks.
At times, the Ghost Army would go drinking in local bars and talk audibly about completely invented troop movements, knowing the information would be picked up and forwarded to the Germans.

With the new Call of Duty: Black Ops II Uprising DLC now available on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360, fans of the multiplayer side of the game are truly spoiled for choice.

Long-range, sniper-rifle-loving players best gloss over this option, as it’s a dish best served with a side of buckshot from a point-running shotgun surgeon. Set in a rundown part of Panama City that certainly wasn’t the inspiration for the Van Halen song, you’ll want to switch to a close-quarters kit if you hope to make your enemies scream louder than David Lee Roth’s oft-quoted falsetto-chorus Pan-a-ma. At least that particular reference is in line with the ‘80s setting of the map; to date, the only Black Ops II map to borrow from the greatest time period for rock, action movies and the warming up of cold wars.
