This week’s competition prize is Beyond the Battlefield: Women Artists of the Two World Wars, by Catherine Speck (Reaktion Books, £30).

In 2012, ‘Women War Artists’ at London’s Imperial War Museum focused public attention on long-overlooked images created by women during the conflicts of the last century. Catherine Speck’s book is similarly welcome, exploring not only the art of the home front and work by familiar names such as Lee Miller, but also powerful art made by women working near the front lines – as nurses or ambulance drivers, for instance.
