Overview

West Indian Women at War documents the hitherto unrecorded contribution made by West Indian women in the British forces during the Second World War. Based on original research and interviews, the book charts the obstacles placed in the way of the recruitment of black women by a very reluctant war office.

The documentary evidence of British racism uncovered by the authors makes compelling reading. But the women interviewed in this book are inspirational; they emerge as doughty fighters, as capable of taking on the war office as they were of joining the battle against Hitler.
