During WWI and WWII a group of extremely courageous women carried out some incredibly brave and dangerous missions. The Glory Girls, written by British BWL Author June Gadsby, is a powerful and moving story about four young women: Mary, Anne, Iris and tough little Effie form a formidable group when, in 1939, they join the FANYs, or more precisely the First Aid Nursing Yeomanry, euphemistically calling themselves 'The Glory Girls'.
However, the glory they dreamed of is short-lived as their unit moves from the London blitz to occupied France. Forbidden love, betrayal and tragedy stalk them and as their personal courage is tried - and sometimes found lacking - survival seems to depend largely on luck.
This is especially so for Mary. As a Special Operations Executive, and with very little training, she is sent behind enemy lines in a desperate attempt to save the lives of men in a safe house under Nazi threat. And now her only contact has been murdered by the Gestapo...
My aunt Phyllis was a FANY in WWII, and it was during that time that she met and fell in love with a Canadian soldier. The following story, my first published work, is a very funny story about one of his first meetings with Phyllis' Mum and Dad in wartime Britain.
