as I had thought given the title of the book, it would be much longer.
The chapters cover nursing, munition work, on the land, uniform and demob.
There is a good selection of old black and white photos, together with
war posters and memorabilia from that era.
This book is probably best suited to a GCSE student who is looking for some background
I never really knew much about the first world war because I find all wars really saddening anyway I read this book about the women in WW1 and its amazing how much they did not just for our country, but for our businesses and for women today - for example women were only allowed to wear trousers during WW1 because of the women who took over the mens jobs in factories and farms. Ladies - can you imagine not being able to wear whatever you wanted? It's crazy! But this book is a fabulous read and if you want to learn a bit of history about women's rights get this book!
