Women of all ages, abilities and social backgrounds played a vital role in the winning of the Second World War. In this book Dame Vera Lynn amasses the experiences and memories of WRENS, WRACS, ATS officers, ambulance drivers, nurses, land-girls, radio operators and code-breakers, spies and resistance workers, from the mundane to the dramatic and sometimes painful. She also recollects the courage and stoicism of those who just got on with family life, creating an amalgam of revealing female experience during the war and their often overlooked contribution to its outcome.
