9780312015961: When Jim Crow Met John Bull: Black American Soldiers in World War II Britain

An important chapter in the history of World War II is here explored for the first-time -- how the arrival of the black troops strained war-time Anglo-American relations, upset elements of the British political and military establishments and brought Britons face to face with social and sexual issues they had never raced before. This book, drawing on previously unpublished new material, covers an important but neglected dimension of diplomatic relations in World War II. As well as providing critical insights into the thinking of many leading political and military figures of the period, it paints an original and invaluable portrait of wartime Britain and its confrontation with the issue of race. It is a tale rich in human dignity -- and in instances of tragicomic hypocrisy.
