History | No Category

Women in the Second World War explores the varied roles taken up by women in both military and civilian services during the conflict from the Women's Land Army, Civil Defence and Fire Service to uniformed services such as the Women's Transport Service, F.A.N.Y., Auxiliary Territorial Service, Women's Auxiliary Air Force and Women's Royal Naval Service 'Wrens.' The story of women on the Home Front 'doing their bit' in shipyards and factories is also included. Their powerful moving stories are told in an authoritative and fact-packed text, accompanied by a wealth of evocative contemporary photographs, many of which have not been seen before or widely published since the war. These are accompanied by numerous full colour images of original badges, insignia, ephemera and memorabilia from the authors' remarkable collections assembled over the last thirty years. This book provides a great starting point for anyone approaching the subject for the first time be they students, teachers, family historians, collectors or re-enactors and would be enjoyed by anyone with an interest in this period of history.
