While whole streets of men disappeared to fight on the Western front, the strengths and abilities of the women at home, whether princesses or parlourmaids, were to be relied on as never before - or there would be no victory. In this much-acclaimed history, Kate Adie throws new light on the era, showing just how momentous were the achievements of those pioneering women and how they made 'a giant stride on the way to fairness and equality for their sex'.
