Review: THE WAR WORKERS by E.M. Delafield

The Book Trunk recently reviewed The War Workers by E.M. Delafield for the WWI Reading Challenge in 2012.  Here’s an excerpt:

I wouldn’t recommend it as an introduction to EM Delafield, but it is an interesting and enjoyable read.

Set in the First World War, it’s a social satire, slow to take off, and a little laboured in places, but sharply observed. The central character is Charmian Vivian, Director of The Midland Supply Depot, which provides supplies for hospitals, doctors, convalescent homes, and troop trains. She approves everything, from sandwiches for the soldiers, to bandages and bags of sphagnum moss.
