Riassunto: A collection of women, some famous, some completely unknown, from different walks of life, talk to Mavis Nicholson about how they lived, worked, loved, managed during the war years and how their lives were changed by their experiences. They were factory workers, entertainers, landgirls, mothers of evacuees, socialites, code breakers, black-marketeers, women who served in the forces. Their stories uncover the vivid detail of women's lives, the make-do and mend, the new freedom that war gave them, but also the euphoria and depression which followed, the post-war adjustments that had to be made. The book includes interviews with actress Molly Weir, writer, Mary Wesley, ballerina Alicia Markova, secret agent "Odette", Pauline Crabbe (Council for the Unmarried Mother), singer Anne Shelton's last interview and many others.
A wonderfully varied collection of women talk to Mavis Nicholson about their lives during World War II in this fascinating compilation of oral history. Frank and vivid, these stories reveal intimate details of how these women lived, worked, loved, and coped throughout those difficult years. Ranging from working-class women to aristocrats, the interviewees share their experiences working in munitions factories, the armed services, and the entertainment industry?Odette Hallows even chronicles her days working as a resistance fighter. Readers young and old will find this book by turns moving, informative, and amusing.
