The Mentalist Review: Unforgivable Things (3/19/2013)@huisclothes. The reason why British women had affairs with American servicemen had nothing to do with the latter's openness and everything to do with: (a) After 3 years of war and U Boat blockade Britain was a grey, hungry and tired country and Americans were new and exciting. (b) Americans had money - typically they earned 6 times what British soldiers did - food, booze, nylons and condoms, things British men didn't have. (c) There was a drastic shortage of British men and few American servicemen had reservations over seducing the wives and girlfriends of British servicemen away fighting (North Africa, Burma, the High Seas) or held in POW camps.
