Helen Thorpe and Vera Hildebrand, in conversation with Laird Hunt

Traditionally a subject of male scrutiny, war narratives and military history are increasingly being examined by women writers. Helen Thorpe is the author of Soldier Girls, a non-fiction on war, women, friendship and resilience. Vera Hildebrand has written Women at War: Subhas Chandra Bose and the Rani Jhansi Regiment. Together, in conversation with Laird Hunt, they talk about the backstories of women at war.
