Notes
This book is the first one to focus properly on the staggering achievements of hundreds of thousands of civilian volunteers and charity workers, the majority of them women, during the First World War, both at home and abroad. The book is, accordingly, one on its own, and deserves a special place in the Collection. It covers a broad spectrum of activities, places and times during the war, and in the immediate post-war period. It is well written and is in any event a good read, as well as being useful for the researcher.
