Summary The Second World War was the first war to affect civilians as much as the troops at the Front: by 1942, more men, women, and children had been killed in Britain than soldiers in action. Caroline Lang looks at the lives of the ordinary women who bore the strain of this home-front war. She examines their contributions to the war effort, not only in the factories, Land Army and Auxiliary Forces, but also at the "Kitchen Front."
