Description

The 'friendly invasion' of Britain by over a million American GIs caused a sensation. But American soldiers offered something even more tantalising than just a supply of chocolate and nylon stockings. Becoming a GI bride provided an escape route from Blitz-ravaged Britain, and an opportunity for a whole new life in America. Some 70,000 GI brides crossed the Atlantic at the end of the war - but the long voyage was just the beginning of a much bigger journey.
