Reconstructing Women's Wartime Lives: Discourse and Subjectivity in Oral Histories of the Second World War
RECONSTRUCTING WOMEN'S WARTIME LIVES is about the effects of the Second War War on women's sense of themselves. At the heart of the book is the dichotomy of women who heroically held men's jobs and women who stoically endured the pressures and privations of war at home. These personal accounts reveal the often unexpected ways in which women reconstructed their wartime lives.
