The unsung and remarkable stories of the women who held London’s East End together during not one, but two world wars.
While the men were away at war it was strong women like Joan, Marie, Babs, Beatty and Minksy who ruled the streets of the East End. Kate Thompson tells the real stories of the war experienced by these matriarchs, a tribe of working-class women in the stinking streets, teeming tenements and sweatshops of East London.
Forget church halls and jam making, these powerfully authentic stories will have you questioning what you thought you knew about wartime women. From standing up to the Kray twins, taking over the London Underground, and crawling out of bombsites, these women fought to survive and protect their community in some of our country’s darkest hours.
