One Woman's War
- By: Eileen Younghusband
- Narrated by: Anne Dover
- Length: 7 hrs and 53 mins
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 parts in fighting for freedom? Eileen Younghusband was just 18 when she joined the Women’s Auxiliary Air Force (WAAF). She quickly demonstrated her keen intellect and mathematical skills, playing a crucial role in Fighter Command's underground Filter Room.
Such a great account and overview. Recommended.

Fabulous insight into the war from a perspective not often told. The account is very factual, with moments of absolute hilarity and deep empathy.
Eileen is my new hero.
