This book is a tribute to the Women Airforce Service Pilots (WASP), heroic young women who flew military aircraft during World War II. Trained as military pilots to shuttle powerful airplanes from factories to airbases, at Camp Davis, North Carolina, a select group flew more dangerous missions pulling aerial targets as antiaircraft gunnery trainees fired live ammunition at them. This volume features personal letters and diaries from these pilots that describe what their assignment was like on a daily basis.
