      In WWII, nearly all the soldiers executed for crimes they committed were black although only 15% of the Army was black Why was this This carefully researched book centers on the story told by a Frenchman who served as an interpreter for the Army judicial system in France The story follows two accused soldiers through their crimes, trials and subsequent punishment.The story is carefully researched, and filled with citations, so I was confident in its accuracy Reading it, I get the idea that unwra [...]

      The Interpreter is the re telling of Louis Guilloux s novel, OK, Joe Louis Guilloux s story was far interesting He served as a translator for the US Army during the aftermath of D Day The translator whose sole job is to translate between languages, not to judge, not to protest, not to attempt to change opinions was a witness to the inequities in the US Army and ultimately America in the 1940s What he witnessed, what he was impotent to change, lodged in his soul Unfortunately, I didn t feel the [...]

      An interesting story about the American occupation of France something that I don t know a great deal about and the trial of two soldiers black and white accused of murder and the exception of the black soldier In the end, Kaplan never fully engaged me convinced me with her argument which I m still trying to figure out Kaplan seems like a talented biographer and there is part of me that wonders if she would have been better served by focusing on EITHER Hendricks or Whittington and trying to use [...]

      Strong storyteller with interesting perspective Ignores the racisms that were pervasive around the world at that time, focusing only on the Interpreter s perspective that was gained 20 years after the war Take the case comparison with a grain of salt instead focus on the comparison of treatment of the trials and the extreme difference in outcomes.

      A good book Good read Not necessarily good history, but engaging as a look into military justice and language.
