You can read the synopsis of the book below:

The Girl Guides were founded in the early 20th Century by Lord Baden-Powell and his sister in the U.K. shortly after he had founded the Boy Scouts. Hampton explores how the Guides’ work was crucial to Britain’s victory in the war through keeping up morale in bomb shelters, demonstrating “blitz cooking” with emergency ovens made from the bricks of bombed houses, growing food, knitting, digging shelters, providing First Aid and assisting children who were forced to flee their city homes.
