Listing Detail Tabs

This is an auction for WOMEN IN WARTIME,, edited by Lauris Edmond, with Carolyn Milward.

“New Zealand women have at last begun to describe their own experiences of the two World Wars. The stories they tell here are intimate, heart-rending, sometimes funny, often unconsciously courageous. They are detailed and illuminating accounts of the crises, shocks and absurdities of women’s lives in wartime, set down by the participants with a moving honesty and fine sense of the dramatic."

"The candour of the sixty-odd contributors and the sheer variety of their wartime experience merits comment. As one would expect, there is a large body of record from women in the services - from WAACs and WAAFs, from ambulance drivers, nurses and members of the Red Cross - but that is only part of the picture. There are autobiographical essays from the first woman government herd-tester in Australasia, and from a young woman who taught some of the 700 Polish children who arrived in 1944. It is the detail which makes these narratives so telling."
