With Girls' Own War Stories, accomplished documentary director Jennifer Ainge brings us a deeply moving and important account of the role of Australian women during World War Two, both abroad and on the home front.
Girls' Own War Stories is a lively and engaging documentary and the women whose stories it tells are witty, articulate and reflective.
