Hitler’s Girls, Doves Amongst Eagles

READ THE FULL REVIEW

The author will be known to readers of The Armourer Magazine, but this is his first book and an excellent start. There have been numerous books on the subject of British women at war during WWI and WWII, but books in any language on German women at war are very rare – Very Highly Recommended.
