Description

Women "kept the home fires burning" while their men went off to war. This is the usual image of the part played by women in World War I. It is very far from the truth. As this book shows, the truth was that many women showed themselves capable of undertaking many roles hitherto the sole prerogative of men, a position accepted during the emergency of war but quickly `righted' once peace was restored and women were displaced by the returning heroes. Diana Condell and Jean Liddiard have selected more than 150 superb contemporary photos and these unique pictures with extended captions and accompanying text illustrations demonstrate the roles played by women during the Great War. More than that, these haunting images create a pathway into the mind and world of the past. This book should be of interest to students and teachers of women's history, women's studies and politics, as well as a wide general readership.
