"A WW2 heroine." - Dan Snow

Love, duty and true-life adventure in the shadow of the Second World War

Christian Lamb is one of the last surviving Wren Officers to have served throughout the Second World War, from Blitz ravaged London, to the important Radar and Operations rooms and undertaking a vital role in D Day.

Escaping both the Spanish Flu pandemic when she was born and the pandemic we are emerging from today, she has reached the impressive age of 101. Now she leads us through the story of her extraordinary life and the wartime experiences of her fellow Wrens.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"An extraordinary life."

-- Liz Earle
Engaging, interesting and really well written, this book is a great read for anyone interested in the experiences of the young women who joined the WRNS during WW2. The author writes about her life but has also included the stories of others too. With fascinating details of daily life in the services, as well as stories of those she met along the journey. A really enjoyable and engaging book for anyone interested in this period. An important piece of our history. * Netgalley *

"A WW2 heroine."

* Dan Snow *

"This was the best kind of memoir, as the author's writing style made me feel like we were friends just sitting and having a conversation about her many experiences. I prefer this warm and fuzzy type of memoir over the ones that are written more like a history book."
