During World War II, Auckland received the welcome invasion of American soldiers, sailors, marines and air crew to train, or recuperate from fighting the Japanese. This influx of young Americans had a profound impact on the local people and the built landscape. This illustrated talk will convey the scale and nature of the friendly occupation of our city, and help attendees look at Auckland in a new light.
