WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
The history books are full of the brave exploits of the nearly six million British soldiers who served in World War II. But what of the women they left behind? These wives, mothers, sisters and daughters are so often omitted from the annuls of war, but their contribution to the war effort, taking on the jobs the men had to leave, in factories, on the land, driving fire engines and ambulances and keeping the country on its feet, must never be forgotten.
