During the Second World War, women kept society going, acting as carers,  nurses, cleaners and teachers; or stepping in where men had gone,  taking up such positions as engineers, farm laborers, factory workers,  drivers and intelligence experts.

This new collection of  stories contains twelve true testimonies of women who lived through  these years, either given directly to Victoria Panton Bacon, or shared  through unpublished documents by family members especially for this  book.

The stories include a farmworker in the Women’s Land Army,  a child evacuee whose east London home was destroyed, a Lady Almoner  caring for needy families at Great Ormond Street Hospital, an Air  Transport Auxiliary aircraft engineer and a Dutch woman who was a child  in hiding, whose mother was deported, and she never saw again.

Each story represents millions of ordinary women doing extraordinary  things, long before the days of political exposure or campaign.
