Introductions by Lee Miller’s son, Antony Penrose, and author Hilary Roberts precede Miller’s work, divided into chronological chapters: Women Before the Second World War; Women in Wartime Britain 1939–1944; Women in Wartime Europe 1944–1945; and Women and the Aftermath of War. Miller’s photographs, many previously unpublished, are accompanied by extended captions that place the images within the context of women’s roles within the landscape of war.
What an eye-catcher!
