Published under the auspices of the Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries, it is copiously illustrated with photographs depicting land-girls in nearly every branch of the work they undertake. The text by Vita Sackville-West is not over-burdened with dry facts, but aims at rather giving a "human" picture of the land-girl's life; but for those who demand also an informative work of reference, anumber of tables of facts and statistics are included in a separate appendix. It is thus a comprehensive survey of an important branch of women's work in the war. Full of wonderful contemporary photographs.Biographie de l'auteur:
