Abstract

War Girls shares the stories of the First Aid Nursing Yeomanry (FANY), a group of audacious middle- and upper-class British women volunteers who nursed and worked as driver-mechanics during the First World War. Examining their experiences on the Western Front with the Belgian, British and French Armies, this book shows how the FANY worked as nurses and ambulance driver-mechanics, and how their work inspired stories of female heroism and solidarity. The author shares the stories of the FANY - a fascinating, quirky and audacious group of women - and illustrates the ways the Great War subverted existing gender arrangements.
