Women at War – ending explained, and is it a true story?

Here is everything you need to know about Women at War series and what happened at the series’ ending.

In 1914, as World War II was about to break out, four ladies from very diverse origins met in France. Marguerite is a Parisian prostitute; Suzanne is a feminist nurse; Agnes is the Mother Superior of a requisitioned convent; and Caroline has just been appointed to the chief post in her family’s enterprise. The series is a harsh condemnation of armed conflicts, presenting the horrors of war through the eyes of four individuals whose lives have been turned upside down due to a battle they did not want to engage in and cannot even participate in.

As a foreshadowing of the difficult journey ahead for us as a society, it also closely examines the role that women played in early 20th-century France and challenges the audience to consider how little progress has been achieved in certain areas.

What happened at the end of Women at War?

Agnes chooses to denounce Father Vautrin to the archbishop when the nun he was molesting kills herself after becoming pregnant. She is prepared to accept the blame while knowing that she would also face criticism for dating Till. Another nun who Vautrin has mistreated is prepared to testify. Agnes is discouraged from speaking when she eventually encounters the archbishop. He is more concerned with the standing of the church and Father Vautrin.

So he disregards this and uses Agnes’ relationship with the German soldier against her. In front of Father Vautrin, Agnes acknowledges her transgressions but makes a commitment to watch out for him. He or any other males like him won’t cause any more nuns to suffer, in her opinion.

The Germans have abducted Lucien’s daughter, and he is prepared to do everything it takes to rescue her, he tells Suzanne. Joseph was blind to Suzanne’s torture at Lucien’s hands. Joseph confronts Lucien, who stabs him and confines him to a room after.

Lucien gets the army of France’s plans back with the aid of Suzanne. She is then accompanied by him as he meets the German troops. When the Germans show up, they tell Lucien they are carrying his daughter. Grabbing their commander, Lucien produces a grenade.

He offers himself up by letting the explosive go once his daughter boards Suzanne’s vehicle and they go in search of a distant location. He thus murders both himself and the troops that are around him. While Suzanne attends to a dying Joseph, Agnes takes Lucien’s daughter in. She tries to give him a blood transfusion with his father’s assistance since he needs one.

Detective Compoing arrives at that point to place Suzanne under arrest. He must allow Suzanne to complete this surgery. Agnes persuades Compoing to change his mind while Suzanne rescues Joseph. She challenges him to reconsider whether a young woman who lives for saving lives, like Suzanne, could ever do damage to anybody.

In a heart-to-heart talk with Suzanne, Compoing discovers that Suzanne tried her best to rescue his wife. She is allowed to go by a persuaded Compoing. Suzanne therefore makes the decision to remain at the convent and support Joseph in rescuing the troops during the conflict.

When Marcel learns what his sister and Juliette have done to Caroline and Marguerite, he is not happy. Juliette is expelled from the brothel and given terrible treatment by him. Juliette, who through all of this for Marcel, feels ashamed and chooses to tell the police the truth. Caroline and Marguerite were freed by the police. They send Juliette into the facility and begin looking for Marcel.

As the German forces may be approaching immediately, the general issues an order for the town to leave. Caroline returns to her family and departs for the countryside. After attempting to confront the Germans, Charles perishes close to his home.

Marguerite makes an effort to say goodbye to her son on the battlefield. They do meet up again, but she is wounded on the way. While her son collapses and is taken to the convent for treatment, she passes away on the field.

Is Women at War based on true-story?

World War I was one of the most horrific human battles in the whole 20th century, yet the four ladies who serve as the series’ main protagonists are entirely fictitious. The Great War, as it was known at the time, split the European continent in two, and the conflicts between the two sides raged for decades before leading to the development of fascism and the outbreak of World War II.

For a reason that no one could truly comprehend, nine million individuals lost their lives in combat, while 26 million were injured and millions of civilians had their lives entirely turned upside down. The battle began as a result of years’ worth of minor political disputes between the two sides, which became more heated in the first half of 1914.

On June 28, the Austro-Hungarian heir was killed, and the Empire blamed Serbia and went to war with them a month later. Rapid alliance formation led to the beginning of a four-year war. A couple of months later, in September 1914, Women at War starts. As shown in the series, Germany was already far into its conquest of France at that point.
