From a German pin-up to American photographers, from Japanese women police to all women British orchestras, from Soviet women typists in the field to German pilots, from prisoners of war to secret agents, Women at War in World War II is a testament to these courageous and capable women and their experience, in both Allied and Axis countries. Included are first-person accounts, from the London air-raid warden to nurses caught in the raids on Pearl Harbor to flight technicians in Toronto. Authoritatively written and including 300 colour and black-&-white photographs as well as evocative artworks from the period, Women at War in World War II is a poignant tribute to the courage and bravery of those who served, and explores how their experiences forever changed the lives of women who followed.
