The shocking story of a WWII shootout between black and white GIs in a quiet Cornish town that put the British-US "special relationship" on trial.

On September 26, 1943, racial tensions between American soldiers stationed in Cornwall erupted in gunfire. Labelled a 'wild west' mutiny by the tabloids, it became front page news in Great Britain and the USA. For Americans, it bolstered a fast-accelerating civil rights movement, while in the UK, it exposed unsettling truths about Anglo-American relations.

With new archival research, journalist Kate Werran pieces together the shocking drama that authorities tried to hush up. Her narrative examines everything from the controversy of American segregation on British soil to the shocking event itself and the resulting court martial.

Extracted from wartime cabinet documents, secret government surveys, opinion polls, diaries, letters and newspapers as well as testimony from those who remember it, this story offers a rare window into a little-known dark side of the 'American Invasion.'
