Summary: by D. Purcell read by Melissa Hartzel Excerpt from Instructions for American Servicemen in Britain 1942: "You will be Britain's guest.... Don't refer to the First World War by saying America came over and won it.... Don't play into Hitler's hands by mentioning war debts. You will naturally be interested in getting to know your opposite number, the British soldier, the 'Tommy' you have heard and read about. You can understand that two actions on your part will slow up this friendship - swiping his girl and not appreciating what his army has been up against." Source used for the introduction
