More than one million American G.I.s were crammed into the UK prior to the invasion of France during World War II. Many British women, dazzled by the movie star image of American men, fell in love with the G.I.s. The children of these liasons deserve to learn about the missing half of their heritage. Winfield, who now runs an organization that helps the children of G.I.s search for their fathers, tells us their stories.
