One Woman's War

WINNER OF THE PEOPLE'S BOOK PRIZE 2013

The Second World War is dominated by heroic tales of men defending their country against a formidable enemy, but what about the women who also played their part in fighting for freedom? Now 94, Eileen Younghusband was just 18 when she joined the Womens Auxiliary Air Force (WAAF). 

She quickly demonstrated her keen intellect and mathematical skills, playing a crucial role in Fighter Command's underground Filter Room. Working gruelling shifts under enormous pressure she and her companions worked tirelessly, tracking the swarms of enemy aircraft that sought to break the British resolve. She even had the dubious honour of detecting the first of Hitler's devastating V2 rockets as it fell on an unsuspecting London.

This book gives a vivid insight into the life of a young woman facing the grim reality of war. 

Eileen's War

Eileen le Croissette was just an ordinary teenage girl. Living with her parents, she spent her days roller skating with friends, studying for exams and daydreaming about travelling the world.

But on September 3rd 1939 Britain declared war on Germany and everything changed.  With Britain standing alone Eileen was determined to help defend her country. She joined the RAF as a Clerk Special Duties and found herself in the top secret Filter Room – a place so hush-hush she had to sign the Official Secrets Act to work there!

Eileens War tells the remarkable story of living through the Blitz, acting as a guide in a liberated Nazi concentration camp and hunting down V2 rocket launchers!

A children's re-telling of the award-winning memoir One Woman's War.
