Summary
"In The Struggle for Cooperation, author Robert Lynn Fuller examines how the French and Americans handled various issues that demanded cooperation. The manuscript explores many issues such as the requisition of French property; the treatment of Axis prisoners of war; care for displaced persons; the disposition of war booty; handling the prosperous black market; the utilization of French transportation networks; GI relaxation and recreation; GI crime; and the effective American takeover of the port of Marseille. Fuller establishes how all of these issues offered the possibility of working together peacefully or in conflict, and how - more often than not - the results ended with positive and amicable actions. Fuller has created a unique perspective on the relations between the French and Americans during the Second World War. The Struggle for Cooperation will be of interest to WWII historians, history buffs, international relations historians, and French and American military historians alike"--
