Overview
-

This is the first volume in a new series devoted to Women in the French forces from 1930-40. this deals mainly with their involvement in the French Red Cross, the Society for Aid to Wounded Soldiers(SSBM), the French ladies Association, the Women of France Union (UFF), and its motor service, the Anti-gas Nurses, Air Nurses plus numerous field sanitary and transportation units.

The book explores how the various units were organized and opened up to women, their evolution from WW I and their task on the Western Front 39-40, in the French Colonies and the foreign service( Finland).

These French women served in many charities linked with the war: Parisian dining halls, soldier's homes, sewing rooms, reception centers, sanitary posts, hospital ships, and war charities.

The book also covers their fate during the Blitzkrieg of May - June 1940 and, last but not least, their specific uniforms, insignia and medals.
