Heroic Australian Women at War has set out to focus attention on the outstanding contribution of women to the Australian war efforts in the two major wars of the twentieth century. In these conflicts traditionally it has been the men who have attracted the congratulations of our nation. But this book like those by other well known female authors brings the nation's attention to the acts of extreme bravery shown by our womenfolk. Among them names such as Olive King, Alice Kitchen and Vivien Bullwinkel ring loudly. These women served in theatres of combat and saved countless lives while risking their own. However, the acts of the women back home were also vital for the outcome of the war and this book describes them also.
