What was the nickname often used for American soldiers by their French counterparts during the First World War?

‘Les sommo-bitches’, which can be translated as ‘the sons of bitches’. American soldiers were perceived by the French to use the phrase ‘son of a bitch’ so commonly that it stuck as a nickname.
