Between The Dances
Between the Dances
The start of World War 2 changed women's lives and their place in Australian society forever. Thousands of women ventured where few had gone before - into the services and workplaces previously considered the sole preserve of men.
In preparation for her book Between the Dances, Jacqueline Dinan, interviewed over three hundred women around Australia to collect the last first hand stories from World War 2. Revealing poignant and personal conversations, photographs and letters, Between the Dances is a testament to real life during World War 2.
From Malta to Australia, New Zealand to the UK, the challenges and adventures faced by these women were unprecedented. Their passion, courage, resilience and commitment during wartime were all a precursor to the astonishing changes brought about by this incredible generation.
Between the Dances is enhanced by poignant, amusing and insightful anecdotes along with scores of previously unpublished and unique photographs.
