Editorial Reviews


"Timothy L. Schroer's deeply engaging and well-researched book presents a thorough investigation of the relationship of white German women and African Americans in American-occupied Germany. The book impresses with the detailed account of African Americans in the American army, which constantly moves beyond simplistic assumptions of racist discrimination, but always illustrates how precisely different attitudes regarding race were negotiated in light of the public eye in the United States and Germany. All in all, this is a highly readable, instructive, and recommendable text."
Barbara Mennel, German Studies Review

"Schroer demonstrates in utterly convincing fashion that certain shifts in military policy simply cannot be understood without careful attention to the history of gender and sexuality, and he provides important insights into a strangely neglected aspect of post-war American military policy."
Annette F. Timm, The Journal of Military History

"Schroer's fine book is not only a welcome addition to the historiography of the occupation period and our understanding of intercultural race relations, it should also encourage further exploration into how the experiences of Amfrican American soldiers in occupied Germany may have influenced America's long march toward racial justice in the six decades after the occupation’s end."
H-Net Reviews


"Schroer's book adds interesting detail to the picture, particularly concerning the ambiguities and ambivalence in official American response to African American troops and their use in occupied Germany."
