In this volume, the author chronicles the diversity and dangers of British women's operational roles in World War II. They took part in the D-Day landings, flew four-engined bombers, worked behind enemy lines and suffered the horrors of POW camps. Yet throughout the war they had to suffer the inbuilt prejudices within the armed forces. Drawing on vivid first-hand accounts and interviews, the author explores the heroism and new freedom of women in wartime.
