This is the record of the Women’s Land Army since its inception in September 1939, down to 1944. 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, a number 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.
Vita Sackville-West was an English author, poet and gardener. She won the Hawthornden Prize in 1927 and 1933. In 1947 Sackville-West was made a Companion of Honour for her services to literature.
