We Also Served: The Forgotten Women of the First World War by Vivien Newman is an interesting historical book that examines women’s important roles during the Great War. Newman talks about the variety of ways that women served – from completing knitting projects to working in the Women’s Royal Navy Service – and the author delves into the specific stories of many of these women. The chapter on how the women were recruited was particularly intriguing. Newman writes in a thorough manner, mentioning facts and dates in detail, and the book includes an extensive bibliography. Additionally, We Also Served features eight pages of relevant black-and-white photographs.
