From the Publisher:

ŒWish Me Luck as You Wave Me Goodbye¹ went the jaunty wartime song, and that was what the brave-faced women did as they bid their men farewell. This collection of short stories, written by women when war was a way of life, includes some of the finest British writers of that generation: Rosamond Lehmann, Elizabeth Bowen, Doris Lessing, Rose Macaulay, Stevie Smith, and Elizabeth Taylor. War has traditionally been seen as a masculine occupation, but these stories show how women were, in a sense, equal participants. They reveal hardship, isolation, and deprivation. By turn comical, stoical, compassionate, angry, and subversive, these intensely individual voices bring a human dimension to the momentous events that reverberated around them, and each opens a window on to a hidden landscape of war.

About the Author:
