Considering the suspicions, jealousies, bigotry and greed inherent when a foreign power occupies another Golden Ghetto: How the Americans and French Fell In and Out of Love during the Cold War tells an improbable story. If ever a US military base deserved the sobriquet Golden Ghetto it was the Chateauroux Air Station, for 16 years at the height of the Cold War it was one of the most desirable postings in the world. Historians and casual readers will be enthralled by this bird’s eye view of how early Communist driven distrust never stood a chance against handshakes and smiles.
