Editorial Reviews

Review

A deeply moving account of female courage both at home and overseas during the six brutal years of war...the joy of Virginia Nicholson's book is the way she has plaited scores of individual stories into a richly textured account of the many forms that female courage can take. This story belongs to us all -- Kathryn Hughes The Mail On Sunday Vividly entertaining, uplifting and humbling, Millions Like Us deserves to be a bestseller -- Bel Mooney The Daily Mail Passionate, fascinating, profoundly sympathetic -- Artemis Cooper Evening Standard Where Nicholson scores over other histories and memoirs is that her vivid narrative is set firmly in the context of the social conventions of the time...this lovely book is poignant, hilarious and inspiring -- Edwina Currie The Times An acclaimed account of this period... a rich seam of social history -- Cassandra Jardine The Daily Telegraph Ambitious, humane and absorbing -- Anne Chisholm Spectator

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Elizabeth W. Schmid on June 20, 2012
Format: Hardcover
Such a wonderfully erudite but readable book.
Made me so glad our generation was spared the hardships and horrors of the Second World War.
Nicholson's sympathy with so very many different women is heartwarming.
Unlike the previous reviewer, I didn't find it a bit confusing.
A must-read for any one -- but most particularly for those of a younger generation.

2 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Wingate on August 15, 2011
Format: Hardcover
This uses the title of the classic Launder and Gilliat film as its theme.How women coped with WW2 and its aftermath.There are many similar books now being published.Taking advantage of the fact that there are still eye witnesses of the events able to give testimony.There are 2 problems.One is that the book becomes too fragmented.So that when one is starting to become interested in a particular womans story the author suddenly switches to someone else,not to come back again for a few pages.The second is the temptaion,not resisted,of viewing evrything through contemporary attitudes.A very dangerous thing to do.You just cant look back all those years ago and say effectively with the benefit of hindsight that this was wrong and someones mother was an ogre.I think that this is pointless.Given that this book is nearly 500 pages long you will need great stamina to get through it.
