The start of World War II changed women's lives and their place in society forever. Thousands of women ventured where few had gone before - into the services and workplaces previously considered the sole preserve of men. In preparation for this book Jacqueline Dinan interviewed over three hundred women around Australia to collect the last first-hand stories from World War II. Revealing poignant and personal conversations, photographs and letters, Between the Dances is a testament to life during the war. From Malta to Australia, New Zealand to the UK, the challenges and adventures faced by these women were unprecedented. Their passion, courage, resilience and commitment during wartime were all a precursor to the astonishing changes brought about by this incredible generation. Between the Dances includes never-before-seen historical letters and photographs.
