Women at War (Les Combattantes) is an emotional Netflix period drama that follows four women during World War One in France whose lives intersect as the country faces the devastating consequences of war.

The show focuses on four women, Marguerite, Suzanne, Agnes and Caroline, who have all been left behind to run things at home, while the men fight in the war. 

Despite the women all having different jobs, their stories cross over in interesting ways as they come face-to-face with the early months of war.

In this women-fronted drama, let's take a look at the acting ensemble involved in Women at War...
