    More than half a million young women volunteered for the armed services during the Second World War, exposing them to experiences beyond the expectations of most members of their gender during the period. This book tells the inspiring stories of Jessie, Kathleen and Margery, who left behind sheltered home existences to fire ack-ack guns at German planes, travel to Egypt with the RAF and service planes for the Fleet Air Arm.
