Mass Rape And Abuse Of French Women By American Soldiers During WW2

We generally associate rape during WW2 with the mass rape of German women by the Red Army soldiers. It was said that the American soldiers by comparison were gentlemen. But that merely is a myth. The American soldiers too violated women during WW2 especially French women. If the motivation for rape for Russian soldiers was revenge for what the German army and SS did in their country, the Americans come through  with an even smaller halo. Their motivation for violating French women was pure hedonism. And the sad part is that the American institutions, the press and the army, too egged them on. Perhaps the aim was to motivate the American soldiers to go and fight the Germans.
