A Forgotten Army: The Female Munitions Workers of South Wales, 1939-1945


Through a detailed analysis of contemporary sources and interviews with former female munitions war workers, this book aims to recover their lost voices and highlight the vital role played by Welsh "munitionettes" in World War II. Through a reconstruction of the experiences of Welsh women who found themselves undertaking essential munitions work, the events of wartime are placed against the background of the wider Welsh social, economic, and cultural context, while their long-term effects on the lives of women and their communities in south Wales are also discussed in detail.
