Please can anyone recommend books in print which deal with the issues of women's employment on the Home Front in Britain during the First World War.

Many thanks.

Arthur Marwick's Women at War 1914 - 1918. Also try looking at University Press or bookshops that specialise in books for undergrads - changing female roles as a result of war was part of Modern History course syllabus.

Signals/Desmond7,

Thanks.

I have the Marwick - good book.

Searched the bookshops today - books on this subject not so much thin on the ground as extinct.

Anyone else know any titles in this subject area?

Regards,

David

Thanks Sue,

I see from the Blackwell's website that the Grayzel is in stock ready for immediate dispatch. So I can start on that - but any more titles from anyone will be gratefully received.

You might like to try 'On her Their Lives Depend' by Angela Woolacott.

Deals particularly with ammunition workers but covers areas such as morals, welfare, and freedom.

Check here for copies

Garth,

Many thanks for that one. Any more anyone, please? There doesn't seem to have been much published recently in this area, does there?

Regards,

David
