What Did You Do In The War, Daddy?In The Arms Of Love was introduced in a film entitled What Did You Do In The War, Daddy? In the film, a wartime outfit of U.S. soldiers is assigned to capture a village in Sicily, but upon arrival, they discover that the town has been expecting them and will willingly turn itself over to the Americans’ rule, provided they are permitted to complete a soccer match and a wine festival.

Romance and frivolity ensue, as a reluctant, by-the-book Capt. Cash is persuaded by easy-going Lt. Christian to go along with the locals’ wishes. Mistaking an orgy for an attack, Germans come to the Italians’ aide, but the Americans accidentally end up conquering all.
