WOMEN’S ARMY AUXILIARY CORPS IN FRANCE 1917-1921 Women Urgently Wanted


A very good and much needed history of the Women’s Army Auxiliary Corps, as after a German air raid in September 1940 most of the service records were destroyed. Over 57,000 women served between January 1917 and November 1918. On 31 March 1917, women in the WAAC were first sent to the battlefields in France, as cooks and waitresses, and in 1918 women medical personnel were sent to the front in France. The author draws on a wide range of sources to provide the background and uses the oral and written testimonies of the women themselves to tell their stories.
