Ann Howard gives a compelling account of the remarkable women who participated in the Services during World War II. Their experiences, both during and after the war, when they were called on to make a further (and to some, an even greater) sacrifice by returning to the home, sparked great changes.

Overcoming resistance and prejudice, together they set the foundation for the Women’s Liberation Movement of the 1970s and for women to have more and ‘be’ more. The stories of these women are recounted with unflagging honesty through interviews, diary notes and supported with poignant photographs and remarkable archival material.
