Commemorating the 80th anniversary of the National Service Act that compelled women to serve, Army Girls captures the incredible true stories from some of the very last living female veterans from the biggest female military force - the Auxiliary Territorial Service - and brings to life a pivotal moment in British history from a woman's perspective. Army Girls like Maud, Vera, Joyce, Jean and Anne share stories and letters in a narrative that travels back in time and sheds new light on being young, female and at war in the 1940s.

Army Girls is about belonging, resilience, gender, life and death. More than any other oral history about the veterans of WWII, this book is bedded in the present day. Written in the midst of a global pandemic that has shaped the last year of these women's lives, there are both parallels and paradoxes. Covid-19 is invisible and the national restrictions were lonely, even divisive but the threat is real, particularly for the extreme elderly.

This book honours those women who fought on both in their extreme youth and now once more in great old age.
