Women in the Second World War Paperback
Part of the Shire Library series
As the world became embroiled in the second global conflagration in just over two decades, the women of Britain once more answered the call of duty.
Many of the first volunteers had served in the Great War and now they offered their services again - this time bringing their daughters with them.
During World War II women proved themselves indispensable to the war effort, serving in both military 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 and moving book tells the stories of these women.
