Singled Out: how two million women survived without men after the First World War

By Virginia Nicholson, 2007

Brings to vivid life women of the 1920s and 1930s who had to manage their own disappointment and reduced expectations following the death of a generation of young men, in a climate that pushed homemaking and viewed them with pity and condemnation. Uplifting book, rich in stories of determined and intrepid women.
