Abstract

"Women of all ages, classes and creeds describe their lives as wartime surgeons, nurses, foresters, censors, bus conductors, police constables, train drivers, bank clerks and munition workers. They inaugurated concerts for British troops or served with the armed forces; coped with air raids and food shortages; drove temperamental vehicles. Some of the contributors are familiar - Vera Brittain, Millicent Garrett Fawcett, the Pankhurst family - but many have been forgotten or are unknown. Together they make this anthology an indispensable, often very moving, guide to the Women's war."--Jacket.
