Jennifer Chiaverini’s latest novel is entitled “Canary Girls.” When men left Britian’s arsenal factories to enlist in World War I, thousands of women answered their nation’s call to replace them. Known as “munitionettes” these women worked grueling shifts, handling explosives with little protective gear.
