An excellent work of social history that will appeal to anyone who liked the Bluestockings book several of us read earlier. We meet a group of wealthy and titled ladies and find out about their lives before WWII, and then are taken through themed chapters on the different arms of the Services (and nursing) as well as love and marriage, class, and the important question of what happened next. Both meticulously researched and warmly written – a great read.
