How did being in the army affect the way that army wives furnished their quarters? Did the homes of army wives look different to those of civilians? Did geographic location matter? Robin Campbell's fascinating study addresses these questions and others in an engaging style that benefits from the liberal use of quotations from the army wives' letters, journals and diaries. This is the first time the experiences of women stationed in the East have been studied. With a curator's understanding of material culture, Campbell shows how the army wives used material goods to create a familiar world in an often-hostile environment and to confirm their status as middle-class women. This is a must-have book for anyone interested in women's history, social history, military history or material culture.
