    A very readable academic study on a topic that has interested me since my mother first told me, in suburban Australia in the 1960's, about the Yugoslav women who fought alongside the men. I have often wondered how she knew, as few people today seem to speak of them. The triumph of the Yugoslav Partisans in World War 2 has been overshadowed by the break up of Yugoslavia, ethnic cleansing in Bosnia and more recently by Serbian historical revisionism. Yet the voices of these remarkable women speak A very readable academic study on a topic that has interested me since my mother first told me, in suburban Australia in the 1960's, about the Yugoslav women who fought alongside the men. I have often wondered how she knew, as few people today seem to speak of them. The triumph of the Yugoslav Partisans in World War 2 has been overshadowed by the break up of Yugoslavia, ethnic cleansing in Bosnia and more recently by Serbian historical revisionism. Yet the voices of these remarkable women speak clearly throughout Batinic's book and a great chapter in history is faithfully recorded. 'For women the very opportunity to be involved in the struggle represented a welcome break from the past. Wartime experiences became the highlight of their lives, which many recall with nostalgia as their "most beautiful days."'

    What a book! An in-depth look into how women we're effectively mobilised during the Second World War, and not just on the home front. But also on the frontlines. It demonstrates the bravery of these women, some who were even pregnant, played significant and vital roles in Tito’s Partisans guerrilla movement. What a book!
