Wives of forces personnel from WWI to Afghanistan tell their stories At a time when the bravery of our armed service personnel is foremost in our minds, this book tells the other side of the story: the women who were left to cope the best they could while their loved ones fought in some of the twentieth century's bloodiest conflicts. These are the backbone of the armed forces -- from the WW1 fiancees who lost their opportunity to marry, to the modern conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan. These stories reveal a picture of just how much those behind the colours have contributed to support the uniforms they married, and what it has cost them to do. AUTHOR: Penny Legg is a former Navy wife and has also accompanied her husband across the globe on diplomatic postings. She is a journalist, magazine editor and author whose many books have been published in the UK, the Caribbean and the United States. Her latest book, 'Under the Queen's Colours', a collection of servicemen's reminiscences, was published by The History Press in May 2012. SELLING POINTS: Personal photographs and memories from military wives and girlfriends Covers 100 years of conflict Previously unpublished stories taken from personal interviews 54 b/w images
