Amid the Smoke and Tears of Normandy and Paris, a Love Story
The allies' liberation of France in World War II began with fierce battles on the shores of Normandy. Amid the blood, smoke, and tears, there were stories of love, like the one of Francine Nelson. She met the man of her dreams, an American GI, as the allies liberated Paris. She married him and immigrated to the U.S. Nicolas Pinault caught up with Francine, now 92, at her home in Normandy where she spoke of her love for her husband - and her bonds with America.
