Following both World War I and II, about 6,500 Franco-American marriages took place between
French mademoiselles and American soldiers, be they “doughboys” or GI’s.

These women, who came from different parts of France and diverse background, would later
cross the Atlantic to join husbands,
settle in various corners of America, suffer culture shock, and adapt to marriage
in a foreign land of postwar plenty with varying degrees of success.

Despite these difficulties, like many other immigrants, they got on with it and survived.

As the compelling oral histories in this book show, most of them did, in their own way,
live the American dream.

Says Hiiary:
I wish to share with a wide audience the engaging stories of French war brides of WWI and WWII,
as well as the historical context of the period. I have brought out a new paperback
and email edition of the book I originally published in French. Its new title is
French War Brides: Mademoiselle & the American Soldier
.”

  Hilary Kaiser, Ph.D. is an oral historian and an associate professor
emerita of intercultural communication at the University of Paris.
She is also the author of WWII Voices: American GI’s and the French Women
Who Married Them and Souvenirs de Vétérans.

she currently divides her time between
