Pen & Sword, Pen & Sword History
The Women’s Land Army are probably one of the lesser-known branches of the women’s forces that served their country during World War Two. Thousands of women faced losing their stories to history, but in The Land Army's Lost Women, countless memoirs from members have been captured, to ensure the vital work these ladies carried out on farms across Britain is never forgotten.
From friendships unbreakable by time, romances that blossomed into lifelong marriages and dances on a weekend in the local village, to tales of loneliness and isolation and backbreaking farm work, these women gave up their lives to ensure our nation could continue to be fed and took the places of men who went off to war.
These are the personal stories from a group of women who deserve to be remembered; from a generation who will soon only live in our memories but who each played a vital role in helping to fight for our freedom from the fields of Britain.
