Summary:
Explores how the Guides' work was crucial to Britain's victory. When the Blitz broke out, the Guides knew what to do. They kept up morale in bomb shelters, demonstrating 'blitz cooking' with emergency ovens. They grew food on their company allotments and knitted for the entire country. It's difficult to imagine the war effort without the Guides.
