Yank Army Defeats Nazi Fake Rape Plot by Kenneth L. Dixon

May 25, 1945: This article appeared on the front page of The Deseret News; it reveals an epidemic or at least a substantial outburst of false rape claims against American soldiers in occupied Germany shortly after the end of the Second World War (in Europe).

The spin author Kenneth L. Dixon puts on the claims therein is unwarranted; women are perfectly capable of making unfounded allegations of rape without the direction of (male) conspirators, especially when rape is capital, as can be seen from the Old Bailey cases listed above. Dixon cites three examples of false rape allegations: two girls who were found to be virgo intacta and a woman who was a known prostitute. Doubtless, there were many more.
