For thousands of young British girls, the influx of Canadian soldiers conscripted to Britain during the Second World War meant throngs of handsome young men. The result was over 48,000 marriages to Canadian soldiers alone, and a mass emigration of British women to North America and around the world in the 1940’s. For many brides, the decision to leave their family and home to move to a country thousands of miles away with a man they hardly knew brought forth ensuing happiness. For others, the outcome was much different, and the darker side of the story reveals the infidelity, domestic violence, poverty, alcoholism and divorce that many lived through. War Brides draws on original archival documents, personal correspondence, and key first hand accounts to tell the amazing story of the War Brides in their own words-and shows the love, passion, tragedy and spirit of adventure of thousand of British women.

In 1944 and 1945, millions of American soldiers took part in the Liberation of France. It was impossible for these GIs, who brought with them freedom, health, and wealth, to avoid fraternizing with French women. Some 6,500 Franco-American marriages would later take place. Many of these women would cross the Atlantic to join their husbands, following the example of their compatriots who had wed doughboys after World War I. This book, a collection of oral histories, tells the story of mademoiselle and the GI by following the destinies of 15 French war brides--three from World War I and 12 from World War II. All of the women encountered cultural shock as they discovered an opulent and open society, but one which was also materialistic and racially segregated. But these women, like the many others who came to America, got on with it and survived. Although about half of the marriages ended in divorce, only about 150 of the women returned to France. Most of them, in their own way, lived the American Dream. Today these women are both French and American. They reflect the image of a successful betrothal between two cultures.

War raged between Iran and Iraq through the 1980s, resulting in over 400,000 deaths and many more hundreds of thousands wounded. The war provided Saddam Hussein the pretense to go after the Kurdish people and punish them for opposing his regime and his bloody campaigns. Saddam's systematic effort to "eliminate the Kurdish problem" resulted in the Al-Anfal campaign also known as the Kurdish genocide which left over 4,000 Kurdish villages destroyed and at least a million of Iraq's estimated 3.5 million Kurdish people displaced. One especially savage episode of the Al-Anfal campaign was the Halabja chemical attack also known as the Halabja Massacre or Bloody Friday. This massacre, led by Saddam's notorious cousin and henchman Ali Hassan al-Majid, aka "Chemical Ali" took place on March 16, 1988 in and around the Kurdish city of Halabja. That attack killed between 3,200 and 5,000 people and injured 7,000 to 10,000 more, most of them civilians. It is against this backdrop that Ms. Zarifa Hassan tells her personal story of what happened and what she experienced - not only at the hands of Saddam's thugs, but from her own people. This is a story that has not been easy for her to tell, but it's a very important one because the same abuses are happening even today in many parts of the Middle East. The practice of marrying off young children - little girls - to much older men is still common. Ms. Hassan is very brave to come forth and tell her story, her experiences borne out of her own suffering in the hopes that international attention can be brought to those caught in the tribulations of war, life as a refugee, and being victimized as child brides.

Nestled on the British Columbia coast, the community of Powell River sent several Canadian men and women overseas to fight in the World War II. When all was said and done, more than forty war bride families made their home in Powell River and the nearby town of Stillwater. War Brides and Rosies compiles these families' amazing stories and artfully captures the history of Powell River and Stillwater, British Columbia, during World War II. Barbara Ann Lambert recounts how the Powell River Company became a major player in war production as local girls became Rosies of the north, assembling planes for Boeing of Canada as well as running the largest pulp and paper mill in western Canada. Through their monthly newsletter, the company also became a social network. It included correspondence from Powell River's service men and women stationed around the world and news on overseas marriages. Using this resource, as well as accounts from war brides and their families, Lambert shows how these women influenced the communities and helped change the perspective of women's roles in Canadian society. Full of vivid detail, War Brides and Rosies is an important contribution to the local history of these Canadian communities.

Gwendoline Cramer was one of the 48,000 war brides transported to Canada by the Canadian government between 1942 and 1947. Many of them were escorted across the water and handed over to their husbands with nothing more than a handsake and a cookbook. Following her heart to rural Saskatchewan, Gwen felt like a fish out of water. She couldn't milk a cow or cook with a wood stove. And then she had the in-laws to contend with...
