This new book aims to explore the wide range of roles undertaken by women during wartime. A useful aid in tracing a female ancestor's military career, the book also encourages wider research into the role of women at war, with a particular emphasis on the Victorian era and the First and Second World Wars. With numerous fascinating case studies, and a very useful guide to available records and sources, this book is an essential read for any family historian with a female military ancestor or indeed an interest in military history.
