4.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful personal accounts 16 Nov 2012
By Liath
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Compiled form diaries letters and memoirs, this account of the experience of women at the heart of the war is compelling. Told with admirable honesty, the stories capture the real life accounts of the chaos, tragedy and liberation of war. There are fascinating vignettes of quirky women, who felt out of their time - motor bike enthusiasts, society ladies, suffragettes. All with their own reasons for going to the front line. Wonderful, inspiring and a testament to the courage, compassion and adventurous spirit of these women. A lesson for our times.

4.0 out of 5 stars A change at Last! 24 Feb 2010
Women in the War Zone, written by Anne Powell is an incredibly useful insight into the role of nurses voluntary and trained in the Great War. it focuses not only on the Western Front but broadens horizons reaching as far as Russia. All of the accounts are those which can be found in the Imperial war Musuem and this book has been very helpful with my dissertation on Voluntary Aid Detachments. It is certainly worth a read if you would like to know how much women contributed to the war effort as men.
