Americans dating in paris

I told him I was having lunch with Nora, and he said, ‘She can come along.’ So we began walking to Trafalgar Square, which was just a few blocks away.

Nora suddenly left us on our way to lunch because she knew Lloyd wanted to be with me." That simple lunch in 1943 launched Ellen on a great adventure that culminated in her leaving home and family to make a new life in America.

Throw in the food, chocolate, cigarettes, and stockings the soldiers shared with the destitute citizens, and it’s easy to see why so many young women gladly pledged their troth to them. Although many British women who dated American servicemen were branded as traitors to their own countrymen, Ellen’s parents felt otherwise.

The US military actively discouraged servicemen from marrying, believing family responsibilities would be a distraction.

In fact, the military imposed many restrictions on marriages between servicemen and foreign women, mostly in vain.

If British women saw American soldiers as a breath of fresh air, the liberated people of continental Europe saw them as nothing short of heroes.

Everywhere American troops went as they swept through Europe in 1944, citizens rolled out the red carpet.
