The diary is probably representative of the experiences of many women living 
through the Great War. More may yet to emerge but this is a very rare gem of 
history. It offers a superb snapshot of the war from a civilian perspective. It carries 
all the joys and sorrows, shock and relief and lays them out for the reader.

The Great War involved civilians on a scale, and in ways, that had never been 
applied before. Women volunteered to do work normally only done be men because 
the men were now in uniform. Some of this work was not only hard but also 
hazardous and it changed the prospects for women for all time. News was available 
of conflict around the world in almost continuous form because the telegraph and 
radio had shrunk the world.

This is such a valuable book it deserves to be widely read. It is a very human story 
that is rarely told, providing a fresh perspective.
