Army Girls Reporting For Duty by Fenella J Miller

Fabulous New Series

Army Girls Reporting For Duty by Fenella J Miller is a fabulous start to a new historical series. I cannot wait for the subsequent books.

The year is 1942 as we follow four new recruits to the ATS. Three are single, one is unhappily married to a bully who is in the regular army. We witness how war actually broadened the horizons of women. There were those who preferred to join up rather than make loveless marriage alliances.

We witness the regimented life of a recruit. Having heard tales from my Dad about square bashing as he did national conscription in the RAF, after the war, it was easy for me to picture what life was like and what a shock some of the rules would be.

There is a camaraderie as the girls’ bond over mugs of tea and plates of stew. Fraternising with male members of the services was discouraged, however love will always find a way. We see the girls settle into new roles away from civilian life.

The modern reader is horrified learning about the stigma and harsh penalties attached to same sex relationships as characters have to deny who they are.

We see the importance of Whitehall in planning future campaigns.

Down time is encouraged as we follow characters to local cafes and the cinema to see new releases such as Gone With The Wind.

Army Girls Reporting For Duty is sure to be another hit for Fenella J Miller. I read it in just one sitting. I look forward to subsequent books and catching up with old friends.

I received a free copy via Rachel’s Random Resources for a blog tour. A favourable review was not required. All opinions are my own.
