Stuart Antrobus has collated together his recommended reading lists on the Women’s Land Army. These are divided into:

For good introductions to the WLA, I would recommend:

  • The Women’s Land Army: A Portrait by Gill Clarke
  • We Wouldn’t Have Missed it for the World: the Women’s Land Army in Bedfordshire by Stuart Antrobus (containing the national perspective as well as specific information on Bedfordshire)
  • Land Girls and their Impact by Ann Kramer
