Voices from the Twentieth Century: Women at War

Voices from the Twentieth Century: Women at War

by NigelFountain (Editor)


One of the first two titles in this important and ground-breaking new series, Women at War examines the enormously important part that women played in the major wars of the twentieth century. From their involvement in the First World War - as munitions workers, land girls, postal workers, drivers, as well as nurses and in the women's corps of the armed services that were established towards the war's end - their role increased with every major conflict. The book is accompanied by an unique, 1-hour audio CD featuring the actual reminiscences of many of these key players and eyewitnesses, drawn from the magnificent Sound Archive of Britain's national museum of conflict, the Imperial War Museum. The result is a remarkable publication that captures the reality of women at war in their own words, and voices.
