Product description

Review

A deeply moving account of female courage both at home and overseas during the six brutal years of war...the joy of Virginia Nicholson's book is the way she has plaited scores of individual stories into a richly textured account of the many forms that female courage can take. This story belongs to us all (Kathryn Hughes The Mail On Sunday )

Vividly entertaining, uplifting and humbling, Millions Like Us deserves to be a bestseller (Bel Mooney The Daily Mail )

Passionate, fascinating, profoundly sympathetic (Artemis Cooper Evening Standard )

Where Nicholson scores over other histories and memoirs is that her vivid narrative is set firmly in the context of the social conventions of the time...this lovely book is poignant, hilarious and inspiring (Edwina Currie The Times )

An acclaimed account of this period... a rich seam of social history (Cassandra Jardine The Daily Telegraph )

Ambitious, humane and absorbing (Anne Chisholm Spectator )
