Product description

Sarah Fishman received wide acclaim for this unique look at the experiences and situation of French women during the Second World War, who were forced to endure the imprisonment of their husbands for the war period. It is one of the first books in English on this subject, and renders familiar the lives of distant people to a new audience. Fishman does well to communicate in a fashion both academic yet wholly relateable and human, with compelling stories to ground the research and conclusions she so elegantly crafts. Enthusiasts and students of history could hardly hope to find a better book!

There are marks suggesting that there was pencil inside the book at one point, though this is vague. The book is otherwise in quite good condition, with the exception of vague creases to the lamination of the cover (please see attached photographs). It would make a wonderful Christmas present for anyone with an interest in history, especially women's history.
