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 (offering the national perspective as well as specific information on Bedfordshire)
- Land Girls and their Impact by Ann Kramer
