Editorial Reviews


". . . An important analysis of the conditions under which women and families lived in the war years." --English Historical Review

"an excellent introduction to the history of working women during the First World War and its translation is to be welcomed, not least because it permits further comparative study of women's wartime experiences." --H-NET Book Review

"Tells important stories which challenge the received history of the First World War." --Canadian Journal of History

"This important volume, now in translation, is a welcome addition to the others appearing in the series 'The Legacy of the Great War'." --The Journal of Modern History

" ... this is an important study which contributes to a fresh interpretation of the role of the home front in Germany during the First World War and of the longer-term position of women in Germany." --War in History

"Looks at the First World War from the perspective of German working-class women,providing an insight into their later behaviour during the inter-war period...demonstrates the intimate connection between"general" social history and women's history....explores the ways in which the women themselves interpretd their world and their lives-a perspective often neglected." --Institute of Holocaust Research

"The translation of this new classic study of working-class women's changing situation during the First World War is and extremely welcome event... The book will be of interest not only to students of twentieth-century German history, but to students of gender and war in modern states in general." --Social History
