About the Author

Lindsey German is convenor of the Stop the War Coalition, which organised the biggest demonstration in British history against the Iraq war, and a regular contributor to Counterfire. She lectures at the University of Hertfordshire and is the co-author of A People's History of London (Verso, 2012) and author of Material Girls (Bookmarks, 2007) and How a Century of War Changed the Lives of Women (Pluto, 2013).

Reviews

'Links two major forms of women's involvement in war: as activists opposing conflict and as workers during it. Seen through the prism of women's experience, German tells a fascinating and important story'
*Nina Power, Senior Lecturer in Philosophy at Roehampton University and the author of One-Dimensional Woman.*
