WW2 CAMP X
Training “Shadow Warriors”
During the first dark days of World War 2, a highly specialized and top secret school was created to train selected personnel in the art of clandestine, unconventional warfare and the gathering of intelligence. This training facility was designed and established by the British and strategically placed in Canada on the shores of Lake Ontario. Days after the attack on Pearl Harbor, the first recruits entered the doors of the newly formed “secret agent school”. Canada, America and the British sent students to be trained at this newly established facility. This highly secret training facility was simply known as “Camp X”.
What makes the WW2 “Camp X” unique is the fact that for the first time in North American history, a facility was specifically created to train agents in the dark arts of espionage, sabotage, guerilla fighting, collecting intelligence behind enemy lines etc. The American agents, spies and unconventional fighters were part of a new organization called the “Office of Strategic Services” or simply the OSS. The creator of the OSS was an America hero from WW1, Bill Donovan, recipient of the Medal of Honor.
