During the Second World War, the Women's Institute truly came to the aid of the millions of Britons who needed them most; in this ambitious new book, expllore the lengths which these brilliant women went to to help improve the lives of their fellow Britons, with the help of more than 5,000 Women's Institute's across the nation. The entirety of its two decade history of education, entertainment, and supporting women came together in an enormous collective responsibility for every Briton to "do their bit", with members of the WI making jam, mending, gathering rosehips, keeping pigs and rabbits, housing evacuees, setting up canteens for troops and campaigning for a better Britain: all these activities were crucial in war time, and their stories are documented in Jambusters.
