9. The Fought in the Fields
Rated 4 Stars
I was impressed by this book and its content - not only does it give personal accounts of the girls that were on the farms it povides unknown information ( to me ) about how the Womans Land Army was set up.
The stories that were given portray unfathomable fortitude of such young girls in the face of adversity, adherence to such hardships on minimal rations and general get-up-and-go attitude the girls held right to the very end makes our lives of waiting an extra 5 mins for a bus shameful when they used to have to dodge bombs.
However the friendships that were formed and the love for their work adds an extra glow to this extraordinary story of their calling.
