Many Hearts, One Voice: The story of the War Widows' Guild in Western Australia
Written by Melinda Tognini
When WWII ended, the men who fought and died were not forgotten – but what of their wives and families? For the War Widows’ Guild the fight for rights and recognition had just begun.
This is the story of a courageous group of women who made a difference to the lives of Australia’s war widows of yesterday and today.
