American WWII GIs were dangerous sex-crazed rapists who the French feared as much as the Germans, explosive book claims

    Book 'debunks myth that the GI were manly and always behaved well'
    By 1944 women in Normandy 'filed complaints about rapes by US soldiers'
    Debauchery, lawlessness and institutional racism are chronicled in book
    Penned by Mary Roberts, a history professor at the University of Wisconsin
    Veterans Affairs rep says there is 'no way' to reprimand the U.S. soldiers
    Comes just after Sexual Assault Prevention Month in the U.S., where the military is under fire for string of high-profile assault cases
    Japanese politician also just claimed that American soldiers used their women as 'sex slaves' during WWII

A controversial new book about ordinary American soldiers fighting in France in WW2 claims that many civilians did not think them liberators but as sex-mad rapists, thieves and robbers.

'What Soldiers Do: Sex and the American GI in World War II France,' by Mary Louise Roberts, a history professor at the University of Wisconsin, shatters the myth nurtured by the western Allies that GIs were welcomed everywhere they went after four years of Nazi occupation.

Professor Roberts said that what the French got instead, when the first soldiers swarmed ashore at Omaha Beach in Normandy on D-Day, was 'a veritable tsunami of male lust' which the ordinary French citizen came to fear as much as their German oppressors.

The inflammatory account is likely to trigger outrage among U.S. veterans who saw many of their comrades die on the battlefields of France.

A female history professor, that is all I need to know.

I only know of one, ever, who wasn't a flaming Femi-Nazi communist.

I'm pretty sure the Americans were too busy trying to survive, at least for the first several days, to worry about "where the wimmin at?"

Yep, she clearly has no clue what happened on D-Day.

I guarantee all she did was gather together every single report she could find, and never bothered to validate any of them.  Because she can put PhD by her name, it will automatically be acceptable as gospel.

However, she is not the first to besmirch US WWII veterans.  There is this ahole named Bruce Cumings who said the US was the biggest perpetrator of genocide during WWII, not the Nazis, Japanese, or Soviets.  He believes that FDR, Churchill, and most US military leaders should have been executed for war crimes, especially the use of the atom bomb.  In his liberal mind, even lowly supply clerks in the US Army were evil incarnate and have stained the US for all eternity with blood.  He never bothers to mention the SS, Japan's Unit 731, or the Katyn massacre carried out by the Soviets under direct orders from Stalin.

sarcasm  on:   

This video of American sex-crazed monsters storming into a French village is just too horrific to watch. Just look at terrified look on the girls faces as the beg  the GIs not to rape them. Oh the humanity.
