The Women's Land Army was actually founded in 1917, but it was during the Second World War that this organisation attracted the kind of attention which assured its place in the annals of the British war effort. Joan Mant's engaging account of what life was like working in the Women's Land Army clearly shows what a hard and demanding task these women had; a task that lacked the apparent glamour of life in the armed services. The book's accounts show the harsh reality of what these women went through, from eating raw potatoes, starting work at 4am and having to bathe in milk sterilisers. Despite the hardships these women faced they are still able to provide moving accounts of their lives which reflect a common sense of humour, camaraderie and pride. All Muck, Now Medals is a fitting tribute to the WLA's heroic effort to keep food on the nation's table and establishes their well-earned place in the archives of the Second World War.
