Opis

In Millions Like Us Virginia Nicholson tells the story of the women’s Second World War, through a host of individual women’s experiences.

We tend to see the Second World War as a man’s war, featuring Spitfire crews and brave deeds on the Normandy beaches. But in conditions of “Total War” millions of women – in the Services and on the Home Front – demonstrated that they were cleverer, more broad-minded and altogether more complex than anyone had ever guessed.

Millions Like Us tells the story of how these women loved, suffered, laughed, grieved and dared; how they re-made their world in peacetime. And how they would never be the same again …

‘Vividly entertaining, uplifting and humbling, Millions Like Us deserves to be a bestseller’ Bel Mooney, The Daily Mail

‘Passionate, fascinating, profoundly sympathetic’ Artemis Cooper, Evening Standard
