AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'War is often thought of as an enterprise that largely involves men. But women have always been caught up in wars and have played hugely supportive roles in times of conflict. In 1984 Patsy Adam-Smith published Australian Women at War, an account of how Australian women have responded to war, from the Boer War in 1900 through to World War II and its aftermath. Now this republished edition brings this account of women at war to a new generation. The extract below tells the story of 13-year-old Jean Doig and her penfriend in Vienna, who desperately sought Jean’s help to escape Nazi persecution.' (56)
