They fought in the fields : the Women's Land Army : the story of a forgotten victory by Nicola Tyrer( Book )

17 editions published between 1996 and 2016 in English and held by 389 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

They came from the cities and their heroic mission was to feed a nation whose menfolk were away fighting for freedom. Initially their efforts were met with scorn - they were teased and humiliated - but before long the farmers were having to eat their words and acknowledge that the Women's Land Army was a success. Their contribution to the war effort has never been adequately acknowledged and the full story of the achievements of the Land Army has never been told. This book, which draws closely on the memories of many of them, is an attempt to change that

Juanita Carberry's story is a colourful and passionate memoir which reveals the darkenss behind glittering White Mischief society. This story starts with her childhood in the 20s and 30s on a Kenyan coffee farm. Brought up by her father's black servants and white governesses, much of her time was spent riding and with the tame wild animals. This was the White Mischief era, when parents were busy partying and children lived their own hidden lives. But there was school to attend in Europe and later South Africa, a different establishment each year, where she struggled to speak English instead of Swahili. There was finishing school in Switzerland, and even in Kenya the less innocent adult life began to encroach on her African idyll. At fifteen she became involved in the Lord Erroll affair and is the only person to whome Delves Broughton confessed to the murder of Lord Erroll
Sisters in arms : British army nurses tell their story by Nicola Tyrer( Book )

7 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 243 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The experiences of the Queen Alexandra nurses (QAs) in the Second World War are some of the greatest adventure stories of modern times and - incredibly - remain largely untold. Thousands of middle-class girls in their early twenties were plucked from sheltered backgrounds, subjected to training regimes unimaginably tough by today's standards, and sent forth to share the harsh conditions of the fighting services and confront the most horrific casualties. The tale of how they coped with these trials is profoundly moving and uplifting. The corps numbered twelve thousand women during the Second World War. Many of them wrote down their reactions then and there - and most of this vivid archive remains unpublished."--Jacket

Sisters in arms : British army nurses tell their story by Nicola Tyrer( Recording )

7 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The experiences of the Queen Alexandra nurses in the Second World War are some of the greatest adventure stories of modern times yet, incredibly, they are largely untold. The service numbered 12,000 women during the war - middle-class girls in their early 20s were plucked from sheltered backgrounds and subjected to unimaginably tough training regimes and sent out to face horrific casualties. Wherever there was a front, whenever there was a raid, a battle, a bombing, the QAs were in the thick of it. The tales of how they coped with these trials is profoundly moving and uplifting, as they recount their deeds with modesty and understatement

3 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When the Japanese entered the war in 1941, some 20,000 British civilians in the European colonies in Asia were rounded up and marched off to concentration camps where they were to remain for three long years. Over 3,000 of them were children. Living on what effectively became the frontline of a war, in daily contact with an enemy whose values were totally alien, they witnessed acts of shocking violence. They had to cope with the knowledge that beloved family members had been beaten, and saw at close quarters the evil that human beings can wreak on each other. This is the first time their extraordinary experiences of suffering, endurance and bravery have been collected together
