Gladys loves tinkering with car engines and driving at top speed. She also dreams of learning to fly a plane. But it’s 1914, and women are not supposed to be adventurous.
Then war comes. Gladys offers her services as an ambulance driver. The War Office responds that women are not needed – if Gladys wants to help she can knit. Gladys is not a person who stays at home and knits. She is determined to go to war.
