Many revelations of what the GI's have been thinking were made to her when she became a kind of mother confessor to them. They flocked to her apartment in Paris, gathered round her in clusters when she visited their camps, talked of their problems and listened to her sensible counsel. Out of those uninhibited talks comes this book in which both the GI's and Gertrude Stein have their say in their own inimitable ways."
