Having just been to see the film Monuments Men this afternoon, I’m back in WW2 mode! But this time with a little bit of a twist.
During my research for my month of eating rations in January, I came across these two books.
The interesting twist on both these books is that not only do they give you a sense of what life was like for women during WW2, but they also bring it up to date: How to be a wartime woman in the 21st Century.
Please check them out.
Also, here are two great websites. The first concentrates mostly on wartime recipes, the second (which I only discovered last week) examines women’s lives in the 30s and 40s with an interesting emphasis on the Australian experience.
I highly recommend both of them.
