To celebrate International Women’s Day, Julie Summers discusses her bestselling book Jambusters, about a Women’s Institute group during WWII, which inspired the TV drama Home Fires.


The role of women on the Home Front is often overlooked, yet their contribution to keeping the country ticking was of inestimable value.


Julie Summers is the author of 11 works of non-fiction; she also advises ITV on storylines and historical script details.
