This book is the untold story of some of the remarkable heroines of WW2, the women who made the munitions and aircraft that were so desperately needed at our time of greatest vulnerability. One and a half million women, a great many from Birmingham, bravely and patriotically did their duty in dangerous and arduous conditions. Many of the munitions factories in Birmingham made the city a foremost strategic target for the Luftwaffe, causing our own government to enforce a press blackout through a Defence Notice in the interest of national public morale. This collection of 'voices' is the last of the so many; nine old souls who were young girls at the time of their devoted service to their king and country. They reflect on the changes that war made to their lives; blackouts, rationing, gas masks, and the funny tales of the black market and fast living; and, how they found romance and love in an uncertain world.
