For book lovers, Lucy Adlington's latest novel Summerland is available to order - a tale of war and longing set in 1946 Yorkshire. Her Carnegie-nominated novel The Red Ribbon, is inspired by the true stories of the dressmakers of Auschwitz. You can also enjoy her new illustrated history book Women's Lives and Clothes in WW2: Ready for Action.

Stitches in Time - The Story of the Clothes We Wear is a fascinating read; for costumes of WW1 try Great War Fashion - Tales from the History Wardrobe and Fashion: Women in World War One.
