Drawing on company histories, memoirs, and interviews, Camp Sharpe's "Psycho Boys" traces the history of the men of the 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th Mobile Radio Broadcasting Companies during World War II.
The story begins with the establishment of a secret camp in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, for specialized training in psychological warfare.
There they were taught the various skills that would be necessary in the European campaign from D-Day onward: prisoner and civilian interrogation, broadcasting, loudspeaker appeals, leaflet and newspaper production, and technical support.
These men were divided into four Mobile Radio Broadcasting (MRB) companies.
They would, first, be employed in shortening the European war by lowering the morale of the enemy, then in easing the transition of Germany from a Nazi stronghold to an American-controlled democracy.
Camp Sharpe's "Psycho Boys" is enriched with new material - including photographs - acquired through personal interviews and correspondence with nine veterans of the camp.
