WHY: Here is a facet of British WWII history I've not come across: The issues around bringing black American soldiers to Britain, which did not have Jim Crow segregation. White American soldiers and their leaders demanded that segregation be enforced in Britain during their stay. The results were apparently varied and not successful. I'm interested in reading this because I'm currently reading a novel about the experience of Jamaicans in Britain during and after WWII (Small Island). The author had listed this book in her bibliography of research resources.
