The "friendly invasion" of Britain by a million American G.I.s bewitched a generation of young women deprived of male company during World War II. For girls like Sylvia, Margaret, Gwendolyn, and even the skeptical Rae, American soldiers offered something more tantalizing than chocolate, chewing gum, and nylon stockings: an escape route from Blitz-ravaged Britain, and a new life in affluent, modern America. This group portrait tells the stories of these four war brides who struggled and persevered, determined to turn their wartime romance into a lifelong love affair.
