Lee Miller was one of the most remarkable female photographers of the twentieth century, demonstrating an extraordinary diversity and evolution of style.

Featuring a wide selection of her wartime photography, this book offers a unique account of the impact of the conflict on women’s lives in Britain and across Europe, as well as tracing Miller’s personal wartime transformation from studio fashion photographer to front-line war correspondent.
