British Women of the Eastern Front : War, Writing and Experience in Serbia and Russia, 1914-20 Paperback / softback
by Angela Smith
British women of the Eastern Front explores the experiences of a range of women from the early days of 1914, through the big events of the war on the Eastern Front.
Their diaries, letters, memoirs and journalism are used to investigate the extraordinary role played by British women during the fall of Serbia, the Russian Revolution and the final push, and their role in reconstruction following the Armistice.
These women, and their writings, are examined through the multiple lenses of gender, nationality, patriotism, imperialism and legacy, but the book also tells the stories of individuals, and will appeal across audiences to students, researchers and general readers.
This is the first book to examine the war in the East through the eyes of British women and as such makes an important contribution to First World War Studies. -- .
