Description

Fifty years ago next year, the first of millions of US servicemen arrived in Britain, after the attack on Pearl Harbour brought America into the war. "Overpaid, oversexed and over here" - as the saying goes - they swiftly endeared themselves to a generation of British women deprived of male company for the war years, with interesting results. Pamela Winfield is the founder of TRACE, an organization that exists to put the grown-up children of those brief encounters in touch with their fathers across the Atlantic. Sometimes the men had no idea that they had a child; sometimes they died before they could be reached; sometimes the story has a happy ending. "Bye Bye Baby" is full of youthful indiscretion and mature reconciliation, related by those most intimately involved. Author of "Sentimental Journey" Pamela Winfield was a GI bride; she now lives in Surbiton with her family.show more
