Abstract

When the winds of war blew for a second time the women of Britain answered the call. Many of the first to volunteer had served in the First World War and now they offered their services again, bringing their daughters with them. During the Second World War women proved themselves indispensable to the war effort serving in both military uniformed units abroad and in home front organisations through the darkest hours of the Blitz. Illustrated with contemporary black and white and some rare colour photographs, documents and ephemera, this poignant book tells the stories of these women in their own words.--Provided by publisher.
