"Samantha's account of the WAAC from its formation in 1917 through to 1921 is readable, educational, informative and entertaining. The illustrations are quite superb, and the narrative superlative."-- "Books Monthly"
"Skilfully blending official documents, newspaper reports, private letters and memoirs, this excellent history covers all aspects of the WAAC from pay, to work, social life and living conditions, in the women's own words where possible."-- "Who Do You Think You Are?" (6/1/2017 12:00:00 AM)
