AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Je Suis Australienne tells the stories of extraordinary Australian women who travelled to France at different times through history, formulating their impressions - in fiction, diaries, letters, autobiographies - between 1880 and 1945. Following the lives of a schoolgirl, an artist, novelists, nurses and a secret agent, the book's sequential unfolding reveals Australian responses to key moments in French history: notably the Belle Epoque, World War I, the "roaring twenties", the politically unstable 1930s and World War II.' (Publisher's blurb)
