A four page article from YANK MAGAZINE that reported on the deserters of the U.S. Army who organized themselves into Chicago-style gangs in the post-liberation Paris of 1945, replete with gun-molls, hideouts, fencing contacts and all the trimmings of a third-rate-blood-and-thunder detective story.

Pictured at right is the stabilized, Allied-backed currency used in liberated France.
