Abstract

Addressing women's personal experiences and understandings of WWII, this volume develops an analysis of memories of wartime as gendered products of an interplay between discourse and subjectivity. The volume's seven chapters include war work and feminine identity, wartime masculinities and gender relations, demobilization and discourses on women's work, and WWII and narratives of personal change.
