War Girls reveals the fascinating story of the British women who volunteered for service in the First Aid Nursing Yeomanry during the Great War. Examining their experiences on the Western Front with the Belgian, British and French Armies, this book shows how the FANY worked as nurses and ambulance driver-mechanics, and how their work inspired stories of female heroism and solidarity. The author shares the stories of the FANY - a fascinating, quirky and audacious group of women - and illustrates the ways the Great War subverted existing gender arrangements. It will make fascinating reading from those working in the field of gender and war, as well as those who wish to find out more about this remarkable group of women.
