THE CHILDREN THEY LEFT BEHIND

By Janet Baker

Over 1 million American troops were stationed in England in the two years preceding the D-Day landings which heralded the invasion of France in June, 1944. This figure includes approximately 130,000 black GIs. By the end of the Second World War an estimated 20,000 children had been born as the result of relationships between British women and American GIs. Approximately 1,000 of these children were black.
