Summary "Based on the diary Marion Kelsey kept while in the Women's Land Army during World War II, Victory Harvest is a personal remembrance of wartime Britain. Kelsey and her husband were reunited on his quarterly leaves and the journal records their travels through much of England amid air raids, bombings, and machine-gun fire, providing a unique travelogue of Britain in the 1940s."--Jacket
