"Based on previously unpublished French archival records as well as published primary sources from France, its enemies, and its allies from the early 1700s until the Great War, Intrepid women is the first serious ... study of a previously ignored aspect women's and military history. Thomas Cardoza shows that these women were far more numerous and far more important to French logistics and morale than previously recognized, and suggests that their suppression was both premature and ultimately counterproductive. He also paints ... a complete picture of these women's daily lives: social origins, recruitment, business dealings, behavior on the battlefield, marriage and family life, retirement, and death"--Jacket.

A college student in Maryland when World War II began, Betty Lussier went to England to help the British fight off an impending invasion. Armed with a private pilot s license, she joined the Air Transport Auxiliary and was soon ferrying planes and pilots for the RAF, and her memoir describes those days in thrilling detail. After the Normandy invasion, when women pilots were barred from delivering planes to the combat zones on the continent, she complained to Sir William S. Stephenson, who was in the RAF with her father in World War I and headed British intelligence in the States. He steered her to the newly formed American Office of Strategic Services, which was recruiting field agents. Her experiences with a special liaison unit in Algeria, Sicily, Italy, and France helping to set up a chain of double agents and transmit misinformation to the enemy are described in compelling detail as she takes the reader step-by-step through some memorable cases that helped bring the war to an end.

A candid and revealing memoir of a remarkable Freudian analyst, educator, columnist, mother, and grandmother whose feminist attitude to life and work was decades ahead of her time. Her life spanned virtually the whole of the twentieth century. This is a tale of communal living in England between the two great wars and after. It is about shared lovers, children, the personal travails and evacuation during wartime, marriages that failed and marriages that worked, extended families and personal loss. This is a hilarious book, too, with wild chapters on the proper making of home made marmalade, on dogs and their psychology, on the putting of motor cars together backwards, and of battles with the planning authorities over an Elizabethan pub in rural Oxfordshire. Dr. Edna Oakeshott, O. B. E., the subject of this memoir, was an indomitable woman who lived life to the absolute full for 95 years. This book is based primarily on her letters, writings, and secret poetry.
